Continuing on Latour's We Have Never Been Modern (1993) with guest Lynda Olman.
Latour rejects the idea of objective truth totally apart from perceivers, so is he an idealist? We lay out the "Constitution" of modernity that keeps science and politics separate, how it makes it difficult for us to address issues like climate change, and what Latour thinks should replace it.
End song: "Mono No Aware" by Guy Sigsworth, as discussed on Nakedly Examined Music #109.
