Networks, articulations, overdetermination and challengeof technoscience — Bruno Latour, Ernesto Laclau and Chantal Mouffe in searching of new socialand political philosophy
The paper is intended to achieve three goals. First, to look for similarities between the ideas of Bruno Latour, Chantal Mouffe and Ernesto Laclau. Parallels can be traced in a relational ontology of a social being the concept of the social, b dynamic and heterogeneous nature of social entities the notion of translation and overdetermination, c political claim to radicalize the democratic representation breaking the “rules of the minority,” the democratic revolution. Second, to present on the basis of these ideas a new image of society and politics, which better describes the complexity of the contemporary social world. Third, to show that thinking in terms of relational ontology is essential in catching one of the most pressing crucial phenomena, which is technoscience.
