For example: the growth of mental issue awareness seems promote solutions toward “connection”, and indeed, medications are more about…
Thinking Religion Through Things, but not really.
“In recent years, the “material turn” has gained prominence in the humanities and social sciences, and it has also stimulated a shift toward a rediscovery of materiality in the scientific study of religion\s.
