Description In agreement with the material turn in humanities and social sciences and development of extended conceptions of mind in cognitive science, the author argues that our cognitive capacities are shaped by material objects and other features of the environment institutionalized by cultural practices. It is suggested that the moods and behaviors catalyzed in effective ritual result from a mangle of human and material agencies.
