Abstract or Description

This paper discusses the use of the concept of ‘event’in Latour’s work, in relation to how the term has been used in philosophy and anthropology. My contention is that ultimately, there is a tension between two strands of Latour’s work: one more firmly based on history and the event, and another more focused on symmetry, hybridity and diplomacy.
