One upshot for Latour’s own approach is thus to rescue the non-human things of the world for social science, to recover the ‘missing masses’, and to give them a ‘place’, a role, an ability to prompt changes, a capacity for agency. In one of his most recent works, he is led in all seriousness to ascribe thought-and-action to nonhuman entities such as a prototype ‘rapid personal transit’ (RPT) system called Aramis (Latour 1996). While there are reservations to be voiced about this ascription (Laurier and Philo 1999; see also below), it is evident that Latour’s pioneering experiments open up a ‘space’ for contemplating the agency of nonhumans, animals included, and for speculating about them taking their seats in his envisaged ‘parliament of things’ (Latour 1993:142–145).
