Yet another highly qualified guide to the work and ideas of Bruno Latour. Harman, a formidable Heidegger scholar, first came to my attention with his 2009 book Prince of Networks: Bruno Latour and Metaphysics, which is one of the first books to treat Latour as a philosopher (and rightfully so). Harman and Latour have since had many interesting exchanges and interactions, including a lively dialogue at the London School of Economics in 2008. This event was subsequently transformed into the book The Prince and the Wolf (2011).
[Bruno] Latour is the prophet of trembling actants, as well as the satirist of all supposed hegemonies and totalitarian codings. In this respect, he is the long-awaited destroyer of the academic sanctimony that more of less ruined my youth. The postmodern divas have good reason to worry when Latour enters the house.

Harman also maintains a blog that I visit somewhat regularly, Object-Oriented Philosophy.
