We apply a representation of the double helix to explain how truth is managed in the social organization of life. One chain, representing context, is made up of the three materialities through which we move - discourses, time and space. The other chain, representing agency, comprises identity, distinct capitals and practices. The chains are fused by horizontal rods, which represent capillaries of power relating the elemental chains by binding, winding and tangling them together in various ways. The model offers an innovative tool for theorization of socially organized truth relations. © The Author(s) 2010.
