Critical Commentary

This is an essay that strives to construct a method of qualifying the body on the material terms of the scientific investigation. Note that this means a reworking of socio-anthropological langue and thinking that often qualify or rely upon the allusion thought and psycho-socio cultural rather than giving materiality sticking fast to material comphresnsion. In doing so, Latour extends the implications of such a materialist reading seeing what epistemological implications it may have.
