There is no terrestrial globe


Bruno Latour quote of the week:

“JEAN-CHRISTOPHE ROYOUX: It’s precisely at a time when we’ve never spoken so much about globalization that the account of the dislocation of the Cosmos as natural unity appears. Isn’t this paradoxical?

BRUNO LATOUR: It’s bizarre but it’s not a paradox: before, we had the Globe and no globalization, but now we have globalization and nothing but blogs!”

From a delightful little volume called Cosmograms by Melik Ohanian and Jean-Christophe Royoux (2005), Lukas & Sternberg, New York (p. 215).
