Bruno Latour – ‘Once Out of Nature’ – Natural Religion as a Pleonasm

Lecture 1: ‘Once Out of Nature’ – Natural Religion as a Pleonasm
The set of questions around the two words “natural religion” implies that only the second word is a coded and thus a disputed category, the first one being taken for granted and uncoded. But if it can be shown that the very notion of nature is a theological construct, we might be able to shift the problem somewhat: the question becomes not to save or resurrect “natural religion”, but to dispose of it by offering at last a ”secular” version of nature and of the natural sciences.
