Articulating the Scientist as a Distributed-Centered Subject – Interview with Hélène Mialet*

“…a mediation adds something; it modifies, it stops, it does things, and it makes us do things. That’s what nonhumans are doing, and this is why they are actors, but in my case, I am also interested in what human beings are doing when we take into account the role of the non-humans. In other words, I am trying to recuperate in this complex network composed of different elements the specificity of the human actor, of one human actor in particular, without essentializing him or her.”
