How to Talk About the Body? The Normative Dimension of Science Studies, by Bruno Latour
The neurophilosopher Paul Churchland “carries in his wallet a colour picture of his wife. Nothing surprising in it,” remarks the sociologist Bruno Latour, “except it is the colour scan of his wife’s brain! Not only that,” he continues, “but Paul insists adamantly that in a few years we will all be recognizing the inner shapes of the brain structure with a more loving gaze than noses, skins and eyes!” (Latour 2004, 224).
