“in both the modern and postmodern cases, truth
is not allowed to vary. Truth is either on or off. We either have it or
we don’t. For modernists we have absolute truth if we do things
correctly. For postmodernists absolute truth is always off. Truth is
impossible since we cannot escape the prison house of language,
rhetoric, and discourse. In Latour’s account, truth is allowed to vary.
At some points we have truth, at other points we have partial truths,
and at other times we do not have truth at all”
