WHAT ORDER SHOULD AIME BE WRITTEN IN?

I think it is good to begin with double-click, [DC], as this idea of transport of information without transformation contaminates our presuppositions about potentially every other mode. Suspending [DC] is related to the phenomenological reduction, of beginning by suspending the natural attitude. The order in the book is already a pedagogical order. The order of discovery, as explained by Latour in BIOGRAPHY OF AN INQUIRY and COMING OUT AS A PHILOSOPHER, begins with the mode specific to religion [REL]. Beginning with [REL] would have the advantage of clarity but I think the analysis of religion is flawed and contestable. However, beginning with [REL] also has the advantage of starting with a mode where it is easier for many moderns to see the distortion that [DC] brings about, the “belief in belief”. The transfer of this result to the next mode in Latour’s order of discovery, science or [REF] would be facilitated. Other orders could be adopted for particular audiences.

    Have you seen this?
    “A text that invents a strategically naïve anthropologist to find out what is might also indulge in the strategic naivety of the utopian to find out what it means to want something else”.
