First, we could go some way with Latour’s semiotic method and his assertions that, rather than talking of anthropomorphisms, we should be talking of many different possible ‘morphisms’, whether these be technomorphisms, zoomorphisms or whatever. The claim is that the term ‘anthropomorphism’ actually ‘underestimates our humanity,’ in that the ‘anthropos’ and the ‘morphos’ together mean both that which has human shape and that which gives shape to humans (Latour 1992:235; 1993:137). People thus give form to nonhumans, but are themselves acted upon and given form by non-humans, in part through the effects of other ‘morphisms’ which enlarge the imaginative resources available to humans for conceptualising their own humanity.
