Bruno Latour: The Normativity of Networks introduces legal scholars and students to the thought of the philosopher and sociologist, Bruno Latour; whilst also presenting a critical analysis of Latour's work in and around law. Despite the relative absence in Latour's work of any extensive reflection on ethics, morality, and law as a normative category, this book argues that Latour's thought is shot through with normative concepts. Paradoxically, however, the mode in which Latour presents his fundamentally normative thought is rigorously descriptive - with the effect of a systematic scrambling of the planes of fact and value. And it is this disjunction of the normative and the descriptive that Kyle McGee traces throughout Latour's work. The first book to address these themes in Latour's increasingly influential corpus, Bruno Latour: The Normativity of Networks will be of considerable interest: in law, as well as in the many other disciplines in which Latour's influence is has been significant.
