« Limits of description for Man on planet Earth »

Bruno Latour, in his book Où atterrir? Comment s’orienter en politique
(2017), lends us a diagnosis of the Trump era, which highlights the climate
debate as a war, and all other geopolitical problems as related to this
war. Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris accords 2015 and
the extensive rise of protective nationalist movements, emphasize the
inertness of Modernism’s idea about Globalization and the need for
geopolitics to look elsewhere in order to answer the question: What to do?
Latour’s answer is to look at man’s belonging to a territory, to a ‘soil’,
in order to, in the first place, describe how ‘the earthly’, matérialité,
the belongingness, is put together. Painstaking description necessarily
precedes political action, he declares. But how? In my presentation, I take
up Latour’s stance of earthly description, the turn towards ‘the archaic’,
his dismissal of ‘a view from nowhere’, ‘a view from out there’ and of
corresponding frames of mind like naturalism, scientism, one-eyed
rationalism and ‘Galileism’. Latour is probably right, that the
geopolitical change from his suggested perspective would be powerless
considered as a philosophical idea, and his critique of those stances is
probably sound – in particular from the perspective of phenomenology. It is
not clear, however, through which of the well-known scientific and
epistemic endeavors we would be able to achieve the suggested ‘new earthly
grounding’. In my presentation I take a close and critical look at Latour’s
proposed ‘Earthly stance’, the peculiar perspective from which it makes
sense to say “die Ur-Erde bewegt sich nicht” (Husserl), and to which a hope
for a future geopolitics might be attached.

Oliver Kauffmann is Associate Professor and Head of Department of
Philosophy of Education & General Education, Aarhus University. His
research area lies between philosophy of mind and epistemology, with a
particular focus on forms and functions of consciousness, implicit learning
and the controversies in sociology of science on explicit and implicit
forms of knowledge. Other research topics include Left Hegelianism, Albert
Camus’ authorship and pragmatism. Publications include papers in Journal of
Consciousness Studies and Behavioral and Brain Sciences. He has been a
visiting scholar at New York University and an invited speaker on several
occasions, including at Université de Nancy, at School of Advanced Study
