Breaking the Frames: Anthropological Conundrums by Pamela J. Stewart,Andrew J. Strathern

By Pamela J. Stewart,Andrew J. Strathern

This e-book argues that the breaking and re-making of frames of study underlie the heritage of theorizing in anthropology. Pamela J. Stewart and Andrew J. Strathern observe that this mode of research hazards fabricating over-essentialized dichotomies among viewpoints. The authors recommend  a conscious, nuanced, people-centered method of all theorizing-one that avoids overall procedure ways (-isms)  and recommend that thought may still relate cogently to ethnography. aware anthropology, as this e-book envisages it, isn't a selected thought yet a philosophical aspiration for the self-discipline as a whole.
