ARELLANO HERNANDEZ, Antonio. De la epistemología de la ecología política latouriana a una epistemología de sustento antropológico. Convergencia [online]. 2007, vol.14, n.44, pp.59-79. ISSN 2448-5799.

In this article, we address some of the epistemological ideas developed by the french philosopher Bruno Latour in his book Politiques de la nature, comment faire entrer les sciences en démocratie. Taking the case of political ecology, Latour proposes to reunite scientific activity around nature into the quotidian society life, and political action into the progressive integration of a common world. For us, the Latourian epistemological response is a methodological strategy that opens the possibility to translate some other dimensions apart from those of nature and politics, and such translation task might be inspired by the study of the humanization process, this in order to start thinking about an anthropologically-based epistemology.

Keywords : politics of nature; epistemology; Bruno Latour; political epistemology; political ecology.
