Re: Richard Dawkins, Knowledge, and Faith

I don’t do ANT in particular, but I have read enough Bruno Latour that it shapes what I do.  Network theory that I draw from is closer to American pragmatism.  Yes, I would agree that networks include people and things.  The question is: does the thing have agency?  ANT folks say yes; but in American social science, saying that things have agency causes more problems than good.  So, I draw from symbolic interactionism to focus on how people interact with and interpret things.
