Political Matter

Political Matter
Technoscience, Democracy, and Public Life

Bruce Braun and Sarah J. Whatmore, editors
University of Minnesota Press, 2010

An engaging collection that explores the politics of material objects

Political Matter seeks to develop a fully materialist theory of politics, one that opens new possibilities for imagining the relationship between scientific and political practices. The contributors assert that without such a theory the profusion of complex materials with and through which we live—plastic bags, smart cars, long-life lightbulbs—too often leaves us oscillating between fearful repudiation and glib celebration.

In his essay, Nigel Thrift writes about Ballettikka Internettikka.
