Unfolding over a long time, it's a superbly rendered heritage of standard humans decided to safe a spot on the earth for people with autism—by releasing young ones from dank associations, campaigning for his or her correct to visit tuition, hard specialist opinion on what it capability to have autism, and persuading society to simply accept those who find themselves diversified.

Yet Spufford underestimates the ontological scope of lists. Lists do not just rebuff the connecting powers of language but rebuff the connecting powers of being itself.

Just behind, a station wagon’s transmission assembly extends down from its chassis, almost reaching the painted asphalt surface of a crosswalk. Everywhere, all across the image, objects tousle one another. To list them underscores the difference between a Latour litany and a Shore ontograph: floodlight, screen print, Mastercard, rubber, asphalt, taco, Karmann Ghia, waste bin, oil stain. The Latour litany gathers disparate things together like a strong gravitational field. But the Shore ontograph takes things already gathered and explodes them into their tiny, separate, but contiguous universes.
