In this book the founder of object-oriented philosophy deploys his model of objects in the context of social theory. In Part One he outlines an ï¿1⁄2immaterialistï¿1⁄2 method to counter the dual reduction linked to the two senses of materialism, which either decomposes entities into their constituent pieces or overdetermines them by way of their relations and effects. Special attention is paid to the virtues and vices of actor-network theory, with the conclusion that ANT needs more focus on the unity, autonomy, and stability of objects, not less as some theorists have proposed.
