Bruno Latour, an anthropologist of science, [...] in his book We have never been modern, he offers a diagnosis of modernity as a condition in which the humanities have become so embroiled in questions of the social, linguistic and discursive construction of meanings that we forgotten how toask questions about what things are. [...]. All that exists, meanwhile, exist only in ‘the linguistic play of speaking subjects’ at the expense of thematerial and technological world. In other words, we humans talk abouttalk, while things maintain their onward march beneath the level of ourscrutiny. [M. Lister, J. Dovey, S. Giddings, I . Grant & K. Kelly, New Media: a Critical Introduction, London, New York 2009, s. 326].
