Spatial Ecologies
Liverpool University Press

This chapter describes Bruno Latour's common spaces. Latour is an historian and philosopher of science who adopts the cause of networks and asks how humans can exist on a fully urbanised planet Earth. He urges intellectuals and theorists to take control in negotiations regarding the construction of common spaces. He also wishes to present the virtual and politics into cities to develop a true cosmopolitics. Moreover, he recommends cultural translation for the sake of gaining understanding of the spatial fictions with which different cultures construct themselves.
