(p.96) Seven Questions Concerning Technology
Bruno Latour in Pieces

Henning Schmidgen

Fordham University Press

In the 1990s, Bruno Latour’s research interests shift from science to technology. At the same time, he puts forth his philosophical theory of modernity. This chapter shows Latour continues to conceive of the topics of his studies in terms of exegesis. Technology is only of interest insofar as it can be understood as “translating” actions into slightly altered actions, modernity is seen as a mere “regime of enunciation.”

Keywords:   Bruno Latour, Sociology of technology, Actor-network theory, Modernity, Biblical Exegesis, Postmodernism, Jacques Lacan, Michel Foucault
