Without ontological investigation, neither this avowed realism nor the reality of various crucial but nonactual factors affecting scientific development can be sustained. g. Latour 2005), similar arguments may be made. In fact, it is not entirely clear what is meant by Latour and others in their use of this phrase. In particular, like symmetry above in our discussion of SSK, keeping a ‘flat ontology’ may be proffered as a methodological principle – the advice for the researcher’s exploration to avoid making ex ante assumptions regarding the identity of factors as ‘macro’ or ‘micro’, not a commitment to the world actually constructed by the actors who are ‘followed’ – or an ontological one – reality itself actually being ontologically flat, without depth.
This form of analysis remains impeccably ex post while, in neglecting the importance of presuppositions as real forces in the world, it is the various antiphilosophical empiricisms that are insufficiently empirical. This also reminds us that we must scrupulously keep separate the ubiquitously conflated terms ex ante (as per ‘rationalist’ philosophy from transcendent ‘first principles’) and a priori (as per a critical realist transcendental examination of necessary conditions of possibility of contingently accepted premises).
G. g. Shackley and Wynne 1996). Like ANT, therefore, while co-production cannot be said to be a ‘fully fledged theory’ (Jasanoff 2004a: 3), it does convene around a vision of science that may broadly articulated. Second, this vision views science as a process in constant and indissoluble interaction with political, social and technological change so that, again like ANT, science cannot be neatly studied in isolation from the rest of society. As Jasanoff (2004a: 2–3, 2004b) defines it, the resulting position of co-production is shorthand for the proposition that the ways in which we know and represent the world (both nature and society) are inseparable from the ways in which we choose to live in it.
