Bruno Latour in Pieces

After having completed some sociological and anthropological field work in Abidjan (Ivory Coast), Latour went to the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California. Between 1975 and 1977, he investigated the “production of scientific facts” in the neuroendocrinological department of Roger Guillemin. This chapter shows that Latour’s approach to scientific practice was shaped in important ways by his early interest in Bultmann and Biblical exegesis.
