(p.133) Conclusion
Bruno Latour in Pieces

Henning Schmidgen

Fordham University Press

The conclusion argues that Bruno Latourșs philosophy is characterized by the gesture of innovation. His ultimate aim is to provide a new sociology for a new society. However, Latour’s innovation implies multiple gestures of oblivion, of effacement. One price to pay is to cut off almost all connections to historical materialism, Marxisms and similar strands of critical thought and action.

Keywords:   Bruno Latour, Rudolf Bultmann, Martin Heidegger, Historical Materialism, Marxism
