Bruno Latour – among the many ways he can be described – is one of the masters of contemporary pragmatic sociology and he has suggested many original innovations to sociology as a whole. This article aims to explore these innovations – in particular the idea of considering social action as the increasingly technoscientific result of even radically heterogeneous forces, which may or may not be associated in collaborative and alliance chains, in plural, dynamic and relational socio-technical networks, connecting human and non-human entities in carrying out a series of practical realisations in a corporeal and material world – and their possible application to apparently very different fields.
