Materiality and Society
McGraw-Hill Companies,Incorporated, 2005 - Počet stran: 170
The traditional approach to culture focuses on the symbolicmeanings of objects rather than the impact that these objectshave on contemporary life. Using the car as a recurring theme,Tim Dant challenges the well-established idea that consumptionis the principal relationship with “things” in our lives andargues that it is through material interaction with the objectsaround us that we confront our society.
Drawing on, and debating with, historical, philosophical, andtheoretical discourses that address materiality, this book is ofinterest to students and researchers in a variety of disciplines,including sociology, anthropology, cultural studies, andtechnology studies.
