The article examines Latour’s political philosophy, especially his concept of democracy in the context of Latour’s usage of the notion of the public and phantom public. In the first part of the paper Latour’s philosophical attitude is examined against the background of contemporary French philosophy. The second part is devoted to the discussion between John Dewey and Walter Lippmann as the two alternative ideas of democratic society. In his last works Latour refers rather to Lippmann’s notion of phantom public instead of Dewey’s concept of the public. According to the author, this evolution of Latour’s views is a sign of the radicalization of his idea of democracy, which includes also non-human actors.
