Train wreck at Montparnasse (October 22, 1895) by Studio Lévy and Sons.

"Science is [...] politics by other means" is a dictum by Bruno Latour first recorded in Pasteur: Guerre et paix des microbes (1984) as "la science, c’est la politique continuée par d’autres moyens". In the English translation it reads: "Science is [...] politics by other means" (p. 229).

The dictum is a variation of "war is the continuation of politics by other means" by Carl von Clausewitz.

It was appropriated without credit in Sandra Harding's book Whose Science? Whose Knowledge? (1991).
