SCOPE NOTE
  • Actant-network theory provides a vision of science and technology as constituted by networks of heterogeneous elements, interconnected by dynamically changing, disparate relationships. These networks do not just contain individuals, but also institutions, terminology, funders, government organizations, publications, and so on. The relationships between not just individuals but between individuals and other entities can provide key insights into emergence and in particular into community formation and evolution. Based on actant-network theory, varying forms of emergence can be considered for technologies and fields of research.
