The media objects are good points of view to observe the logics of social life, the self-descriptions of society and its symbolic reproduction, the basic features of its imagery. The media objects give us the image of a society not longer symbolically founded on a stratified order of the differences but made by a web of included individuals: they are also the place where the images and the logics of a social and abstract symbolic world become visible and real, where they are incorporated in forms and practices, and so give a form to thoughts and relationships. Among these objects, the mobile telephone is un example of mediator object because of the incorporation of the logic of contingence whose roots can be found in the indifference of symbolic forms and ideas which modernity is based on, money in particularly.
