Sherry Turkle: Evocative Objects

Popular American author Sherry Turkle has just released a compilation of writings on the power of the object in thought. From the MIT description:

In Evocative Objects, Turkle collects writings by scientists, humanists, artists, and designers that trace the power of everyday things. These essays reveal objects as emotional and intellectual companions that anchor memory, sustain relationships, and provoke new ideas.

The book offers the prospect of a poetics of consumerism, to delve onto the space that objects make in daily life. Does it have a critical framework for this?
