Example text

However illness made this impossible and he entered the family business instead. Limitations on the rights of dissenters were not lifted until the end of the nineteenth century and were still very much in play during most of WH Wills’ life. The Merchant Venturers of Bristol had a long history of discrimination against non-conformists. Edward Colston, the famous eighteenth century Merchant Venturer and ‘philanthropist’, had established a school in Bristol, to be run by the Venturers, from which Dissenters were expressly excluded.

A number of dependences between the points of view become visible in the process. They define on the one hand the framework in which questions such as ‘public space’ and ‘public realm’ may be addressed in an Arts, Design or Architecture course at a university. We could take the example of a food chain (wolves, sheep, grass) and easily find that the interesting link is the one of the wolf to yoghurt, or feta if you prefer. The sense here is the one where a network appears as a figure of the social, rather than the alibi of sociability.

Let us attempt an approach to the public realm through the fragments Latour mentions, the simple substances, or the universes of Leibniz. They are ‘infinite’ in number, while being different ‘aspects’ of a single one. The implication has been known and used in differential and integral calculus for a long time. Latour describes the fragments as that which has happened to destroy the traditional cohesion of society, processes at work in the city, such as the fragmentation of a structure which defies unity, so that the society as a whole, is fragmented.
