Bruno Latour — Inside the 'Planetary Boundaries': Gaia's Estate"
From 'Facing Gaia: Six lectures on the political theology of nature.' Presented as part of the Gifford Lectures on Natural Religion. Edinburgh, February 2013. Announced as winner of the 2013 Holberg Prize a month later, the prize committee stated that Latour "has undertaken an ambitious analysis and reinterpretation of modernity, and has challenged fundamental concepts such as the distinction between modern and pre-modern, nature and society, human and non-human," and that "the impact of Latour's work is evident internationally and far beyond studies of the history of science, art history, history, philosophy, anthropology, geography, theology, literature and law."
