What ANT is not

latour-thumb.jpgBut your question was: ‘What can I do with ANT’? I answered it:
no structuralist explanation. The two are completely incompatible. Either you
have actors who realize potentialities and they are not actors at all, or you
describe actors who are making virtualities actual (this is Deleuze’s
parlance by the way), and that requires very specific texts, and your connection
with those you study requires very specific protocols to work — I guess
this is what you would call ‘critical edge’ and ‘political
relevance’.
