Abstract or Description

The works of Gillian Rose in philosophy and social theory provide an alternative perspective on the debates around Actor-Network Theory (ANT), which goes beyond the choice between `radical epistemology' versus `radical politics'. This paper outlines some salient elements of her work, in particular the concept of `diremption `—forced splitting—and `the broken middle' between law and ethics. The paper builds on this work in arguing that a focus on conduct, defined as both discipline and practices, can remain critical of the contemporary world whilst aware of the problems of representation and explanation addressed within ANT
