Description - Reconnecting Culture, Technology and Nature by Mike Michael

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 Micheal Serres, the author elaborates an innovative 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.
