Принцип симметрии в работах Д.Блура и Б.Латура

 

In this piece, two main interpretations of the principle of symmetry are presented. The comparative analysis reveals the interconnection between the strong programme in the sociology of scientific knowledge (SSK) and the actor-network theory(ANT). Firstly, the article explores the relation of the symmetry principle to the other tenets of Bloor’s methodology. Secondly, the main features of the generalized symmetry principle in the “early” ANT by M. Callon and B. Latour are considered. As a result, it is stated that historically symmetrism of Latour is an extension of one of Bloor’s. And if the theoretical similarities of two approaches are taken into account, SSK-version of the principle could be regarded as one of the possible perspectives within ANT-version.
