Critical Commentary

This article, originally written in Danish, is a response to certain criticisms of the "ontological turn" in anthropology and STS. Specifically, it examines questions about what it would mean for ontologies and worlds to be "multiple," how relations among such worlds should be thought, and notions of culture, knowledge, and practice in ontological approaches.
