John Law (sociologist)
This paper describes the theory of the actor-network, a body of theoretical and empirical writing which treats social relations, including power and organization, as network effects. The theory is distinctive because it insists that networks are materially heterogeneous and argues that society and organization would not exist if they were simply social. Agents, texts, devices, architectures are all generated in, form part of, and are essential to, the networks of the social. And in the first instance, all should be analyzed in the same terms. Accordingly, in this view, the task of sociology is to characterize the ways in which materials join together to generate themselves and reproduce institutional and organizational patterns in the networks of the social.
I discuss the ways in which each of them has evolved. Nesse trabalho discuto o modo como cada uma delas tem-se movido. But what reason? Other attempts may have followed these, but I remain unaware of their existence, much less of their fate. As for the rest, I remain oblivious to what happened to the new perspectives announced in , or the new directions announced in , or the hermeneutic sociology of knowledge announced in However, the sociology of knowledge does not exist solely as an academic discipline. Beyond the sociology of knowledge that became established as such following the seminal writings of Mannheim, published in the s, 2 there is another one that never turned into a discipline, but nevertheless remains alive and kicking within other disciplines.

Type of work: Journal. This paper outlines a new approach to the study of power, that of the sociology of translation. Starting from three principles, those of agnosticism impartiality between actors engaged in controversy , generalised symmetry the commitment to explain conflicting viewpoints in the same terms and free association the abandonment of all a priori distinctions between the natural and the social , the paper describes a scientific and economic controversy about the causes for the decline in the population of scallops in St. Brieuc Bay and the attempts by three marine biologists to develop a conservation strategy for that population. In conclusion it is noted that translation is a process, never a completed accomplishment, and it may as in the empirical case considered fail.
Ты знала об. Сьюзан посмотрела на него, стараясь не показать свое изумление. - Неужели.
Блестящий криптограф - и давнишнее разочарование Хейла. Он часто представлял, как занимается с ней сексом: прижимает ее к овальной поверхности ТРАНСТЕКСТА и берет прямо там, на теплом кафеле черного пола. Но Сьюзан не желала иметь с ним никакого дела. И, что, на взгляд Хейла, было еще хуже, влюбилась в университетского профессора, который к тому же зарабатывал сущие гроши. Очень жаль, если она истратит свой превосходный генетический заряд, произведя потомство от этого выродка, - а ведь могла бы предпочесть его, Грега.
Сьюзан удалось протиснуть в щель плечо. Теперь ей стало удобнее толкать. Створки давили на плечо с неимоверной силой.
