Chapter 10 opens up space for considering mundane governance as involved in constituting matter, both in the evidential sense of bringing matter into being and in the sense of constituting what ought to matter, why, how, assessed by what means, using what kind of process, and so on. In this sense, the bin bag of Chapter 2 can be wrong through its particular passage of relations of ontological constitution, evidential, and moral ordering, accountability relations, their consequence, output and disruption. The argument about bin bags and other matters focuses on the mundane—in the twin sense of being every day and becoming of the world—and governance in respect to accountabilities and ontologies. The chapter explores partial aspects of the narratives of mundane governance offered in preceding chapters. It concludes with an analysis of the continual changes that are a central characteristic of mundane governance by looking to the future.
