When I made this chart I titled it “anti-Latour,” but I don’t remember why.


  1. I used Latour extensively in my dissertation (titled, omitting the pedantic subtitle, 'Mutable Mobiles'), and I can't figure out why either.

  2. Perhaps because it's clear and comprehensible, whereas Latour's charts are baroque and inscrutable?

    Somwhere in Latour—maybe POLITICS OF NATURE—he concludes a paragraph "perhaps a diagram will help clarify," to which my marginal note was: no, I really doubt it.
