Prendre le pli des techniques

Bruno Latour

Based on the notion of a mode of existence developed by Gilbert Simondon and especially Etienne Souriau, the question of techniques can be addressed without us being limited by the excessive presence of one of the results: technical objects. We can then try to define the mode of the technique as a movement, a project, a pleating, a very particular form of transcendence, which has not received from philosophy the treatment that its importance and ubiquity warrant. The notion of instauration proposed by Souriau enables us to re-examine the question of construction, but freed from the ambiguities of constructivism.
