Bruno Latour


All editorials written exclusively for Domus by the great French philosopher, sociologist and anthropologist.

“Can there be a non-modern style?”

What is a style that would at last be contemporary, in and of itself, when objects are turned into things and Modern can be identified as a mainly ethic category?

“The ghost of the public”

Against the illusion of direct democracy in times of representation crisis: “It’s because of a massive transformation and extended “spin” that politics  accomplishes the feat of transforming the many voices into a few”

“Which politics for which artifacts?”

The great French intellectual has passed away at the age of 75. He had been a regular contributor to Domus in 2004, writing one editorial per issue: speeches that are still highly topical, of which we republish the one that originally appeared on issue 871.
