Book Description Orient Longman, 2007. Soft cover. Condition: As New. Contents Introduction What is to be done with political ecology. 1. Why political ecology has to let go of nature. 2. How to bring the collective together. 3. A new separation of powers. 4. Skills for the collective. 5. Exploring common worlds. Conclusion What is to be done political ecology. Summary of the argument (for readers in a hurry). Glossary. Notes. Bibliography. Index. A major work by one of the more innovative thinkers of our time Politics of Nature does nothing less than establish the conceptual context for political ecology transplanting the terms of ecology into more fertile philosophical soil than its proponents have thus far envisioned. Bruno Latour announces his project dramatically Political ecology has nothing whatsoever to do with nature this jumble of Greek philosophy French Cartesianism and American parks. Nature he asserts far from being an obvious domain of reality is a way of assembling political order without due process. Thus his book proposes an end to the old dichotomy between nature and society and the constitution in its place of a collective a community incorporating humans and nonhumans and building on the experiences of the sciences as they are actually practiced. In a critique of the distinction between fact and value Latour suggest a redescription of the type of political philosophy implicated in such a commonsense division which here reveals itself as distinctly uncommonsensical and in fact fatal to democracy and to a healthy development of the sciences. Moving beyond the modernist institutions of mononaturalism and multi culturalism Latour develops the idea of multinaturalism a complex collectivity determined not by outside experts claiming absolute reason but by diplomats who are flexible and open to experimentation. 308 pp. Seller Inventory # 63269
