Pasteurization of France by Bruno Latour
Book DescriptionAlthough every town in France has a street named for Pasteur, was he alone able to stop people from spitting, persuade them to dig drains, influence them to undergo vaccination? Pasteur's success depended upon a whole network of forces, including the public hygiene movement, the medical profession (both military physicians and private practitioners), and colonial interests. It is the operation of these forces, in combination with the talent of Pasteur, that Bruno Latour sets before us as a prime example of science in action.

Inquiry into Modes of Existence, Hardback (August 2013)
In a new approach to philosophical anthropology, this book offers answers to questions raised in We Have Never Been Modern: If not modern, what have we been, and what values should we inherit? It offers a new basis for diplomatic encounters with other societies at a time of ecological crisis.
