my copy has a lot of: ":-O" and "YES!" in it.not sure whether that says more about me or latour
your own comments?Latour's interlocutor returns in chapter five with the comments: "not true; comparing apples to ORANGES!!" and ""BULLSHIT" -- rophi". I don't know who rophi is, but apparently s/he was less than impressed with Latour's critique of postmodernism.
oh yes, my own comments.I think this book helped me understand what it must feel like for those college freshmen that read Atlas Shrugged.Signing your comments to the author in the marginalia is a good idea. You never know—your copy could end up in Bruno Latour's hands:"Oh, rophi, hoist with my own petard! the modern constitution doesn't allow me to compare apples to oranges!"
Ha!! I just noticed more of rophi's insight. In figure 5.1, the diagram of "What is retained and what is rejected" from the moderns, premoderns and postmoderns, s/he has added a very large, approving asterisk next to "ironic reflexivity," and an ironically reflexive questionmark next to "rationality." niceeeee
