Posted: November 29, 2013 in History/Philosophy, Philosophy Jokes/Yo Mama-ish, Quicky

One should add the comical role of being-there-just-to-prove-that-one-is-not-an-idealist role invented by Kant […] things are there but play no role except that of mute guardians holding the sign. We deny that we deny the existence of an outside reality. Quite a function well worth hapless ‘things in themselves’.” B. Latour – “The promises of constructivism” In: Chasing Technoscience: Matrix of Materiality, Don Idhe (ed.), Indiana University Press, Bloomington, 2003, p. 32.

Kant, dat bitch of Latour!
