A Sociological Consideration of Prayer and Agency

Publication ,  Journal Article
Sun, A
Published in: TDR/The Drama Review
December 2016

Prayer may be seen as one of the most individual forms of action. Yet, like suicide, another supposedly individualistic action performed by a solitary individual, prayer is a dynamic, reflexive, intersubjective social action, and the sociality of prayer may transform the agency of the actor who is committed to this action over time.
