Material Agency : Towards a Non-anthropocentric Approach, Hardback Book

Material Agency : Towards a Non-anthropocentric Approach Hardback

Edited by Carl Knappett, Lambros Malafouris


Thus far an 'agent' in the social sciences has always meant someone whose actions bring about change.

In this volume, the editors challenge this position and examine the possibility that agency is not a solely human property.

Instead, this collection of archaeologists, anthropologists, sociologists and other social scientists explores the symbiotic relationships between humans and material entities (a key opening a door, a speed bump raising a car) as they engage with one another.
