Show Summary Details


This chapter describes translation as an ontological operation, which is neatly summarized by the principle of irreduction in a single word. Similarly, we might also summarize the principle of irreduction with just the term “representation” because all translations are representations. For Latour, a human way of being is representational, but this is nothing special because every kind of relationship between every kind of object is also representational.

Keywords: translation; ontological operation; irreduction; representation

Chapter.  1375 words.
