Schuster 1989 On Bruno Latour as Historian

John A. Schuster, ‘Bruno’s (No History Required) Tour of the Past’ This paper on the historiographical implications of Latour’s early work was originally delivered at 1989 Conference of the Australasian Assoc for the History, Philosophy and Social Studies of Science, and then published in a set of working papers on ‘Deconstructing Bruno Latour’ by the University of Wollongong STS Research Group. I believe it may still exist somewhere on their research site, but I choose to make it somewhat less ‘obscure’ here as the strictures it poses to Latour’s theorizing remain as true today as they were 30 years ago.
