Unseld Lecture with Bruno Latour on the relationship between mankind and nature

Sociologist and philosopher Bruno Latour at the University of Tübingen

Human beings are not superior rulers over nature, but are closely intertwined with it; we are symbiotic creatures of Gaia. That is the theory of French sociologist and philosopher and Bruno Latour, whose Gaia theory argues that global progress is an undesirable utopia. The topic of the 2017 Unseld Lecture is Political Ecology; Latour will outline and discuss his theory. Latour is known for his work in the area of investigation into the impact of science and technology, which has received the critical attention of researchers across the disciplines, particularly in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
