Beginning by presenting his 2005 book Reassembling the Social as a key text for social scientists, this article introduces Latour’s social material philosophy and exploration of a reality consisting of actants, networks, and lively relationships. It puts the metaphysical Latour side-by-side with the one interested in questions of environment, politics, and practical methods. It aims to pull diverse elements of Latour’s writings and associations together into a useful summary, while remaining faithful to his theoretical commitments to heterogeneity, translation, mutation, and hybridity.
