McLuhan Meets Derrida And Cholera In Science Studies

Languages of publication



The present text is a special kind of an introduction to the study „Visualization and Cognition” by Bruno Latour, structurally referring to the „A prologue in form of a dialogue between a Student and his (somewhat) Socratic Professor” by the same author. There emerges a picture of one of Latour’s two most important works on science, the source of his most important findings in this field, a classic of the area of visual anthropology. As shown by the authors, „Visualization ...” gives us an opportunity to comprehend the broadly understood images of the anthropology of science and the Actor-Network Theory, and can be a starting point for the moral and political reflection on modern science, including attempts to deal with the question: how to do science in a reasonable manner.
