If materialism is a movement, then materiality must be whatever it is that materialism advocates. Or perhaps matter rather than materiality is championed by materialism, and the complicated and more nuanced word “materiality” tries to deconstruct the seeming simplicity of matter. “Matter” is conventionally opposed to “ideality,” where matter is real, physical, and grounding, while ideas, culture, or representation are more human, temporal, and malleable. Then one might think of “materiality” as a process that generates or opens the distinction between mind and matter, or ideas and matter.
