Recorded on 20 February 2014 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.
Although it is still useful to insist on the distinction between science and politics, the scale and importance of ecological mutations make it more and more difficult to use it effectively. The problem is that the alternative requires a redefinition of the two terms "science" and "politics". The lecture will explore in which way an alternative definition could help us to cope with the geopolitical debates that will become more and more intense in the future.
Bruno Latour is a renowned French sociologist of science, anthropologist and professor at Sciences Po, Paris and LSE Centennial Professor in the Department of Sociology.
