LATOUR A SARTRE V CAFÉ DE FLORE
Latour and Sartre in Café de Flore
Languages of publication
The paper aims at illustrating two different philosophical views on one and the same activity, namely a waiter’s job performance, in particular a waiter from the famous Parisian Café de Flore. The first view is exemplified by Sartre’s notes about the waiter’s behaviour in Being and nothingness  which he probably wrote down just in that cafe. The second view offers Bruno Latour in his book Paris: Invisible City  in which he analyses the operating procedures of a waiter in the same cafe. These two approaches shed some light on the conditions in this coffee bar.
