How to talk about the body? The normative dimension of science studies
Symposium edited by Madeleine Akrich and Marc Berg, Bodies on Trial , special issue of Body and Society Vol . 10, number 2/3 pp. 205-229, 2004 [Prepublication in a somewhat different form in From the margins, special issue on “Bodies Beings Genders”, pp. ??]
This paper closely follows (74) on articulation and puts the notion to use in the context of a seminar on the body. After defining the body as what learns to be affected, it develops a falsification principle, opposite to that of Popper, and which is extracted from the work of the Belgian philosophers Isabelle Stengers and Vinciane Despret. Once this principle defined, it becomes possible to avoid the usual dualism of the physiological versus the phenomenological body.
