- Bruno Latour, the French sociologist, anthropologist and long-established superstar in the social sciences is revisited in this pioneering account of his ever-evolving political philosophy. Breaking from the traditional focus on his metaphysics, most recently seen in Harman's book Prince of Networks, the author instead begins with the Hobbesian and even Machiavellian underpinnings of Latour'ss early period encountering his shift towards Carl Schmitt then finishing with his final development into the Lippmann / Dewey debate.--Provided by publisher.
