Translations, Betrayals and Controversies in the Articulation of The Uncertainty Principle: Potentialities and Challenges of a Symmetrical History of Physics

Nathan Willig Lima, Gabriela Gomes Rosa, Miguel Rocha Bento

Abstract


In this paper, we discuss the potentialities and challenges of historical approaches related to the Symmetrical Anthropology proposed by Bruno Latour and collaborators. To accomplish this goal, first, we provide a brief account about how Sociology and Anthropology of Science evolved, stressing how these different movements correlate with historiographical approaches. Second, we introduce the metaphysical scheme of Symmetrical Anthropology and discuss which characteristics a historical narrative should have to be consistent with this world vision. Third, we briefly describe the articulation of the Uncertainty Principle focusing on appropriating such characteristics. Based on this concrete historical account, we discuss the potentialities and challenges of this approach to History of Physics.
