Politics of Nature: How to Bring the Sciences into Democracy

Bruno Latour

Latour propose a new approach to introduce one fundamental component of the commons - nature - in the political debate. As a provocation he ask: are we experiencing an "Ecological Crisis or a Crisis of Objectivity?". His approach [Politics of Nature Latour.doc] is as valid to ecological politics as it is for understanding any entrepreneurial innovation is the commons or in the market.
