Reconnecting Culture, Technology and Nature : From Society to Heterogeneity
Drawing on the insights of Bruno Latour, Donna Haraway and Michel Serres, the author elaborates a methodology through which new hybrid objects of study are creatively constructed, tracing the ways the cultural, the natural and the technological interweave in the production of order and disorder.
Every day life is increasingly mediated by technology, but most of the literature on the subject talks only in terms of radical advances. In "From Society to Heterogeneity" Mike Michael uses case studies of mundane technologies such as the walking boot, the car and the TV remote control to question some of the fundamental dichotomies through which we make sense of the world. Drawing on the insights of Bruno Latour, Donna Harroway and Michel Serres, the author elaborates a methodology through which new hybrid objects of study are creatively constructed, tracing the ways in which the cultural, the natural and the technological interweave in the production of order and disorder. This book critically engages with and draws connections between a wide range of literature including those concerned with the environment, consumption and the body.
Situating technology and technologizing situations; theorizing heterogeneity and distributedness; walking boots - distributing the environment; co(a)gents and control - purifying "Road Rage"; disciplined and disciplining co(a)gents - the remote control and the couch; narrating co(a)gents - the case of the hudogledog.
