  • Ancient DNA in Physical Anthropology
    Ancient DNA in Physical Anthropology
    This work is a review of Ancient DNA''s place and utility in the field of physical anthropology. The work begins with a discussion of the methods and techniques used in studying ancient DNA, concentrating on those techniques most relevant to anthropology.These steps trace the process from likely places to find ancient DNA to procuring the DNA, extracting it, and determining the DNA''s authenticity. The next part of the work reviews the history of ancient DNA and the types of research questions that ancient DNA can help answer. The last part of the work utilizes the concepts and ideas from the first two sections to form two case studies on the use of ancient DNA. The first study examines the use of ancient DNA in studying the colonization of the Pacific and demonstrates the utility of a multi-disciplinary approach when using ancient DNA. The second case study looks at how ancient DNA has changed and broadened our understanding of the Neanderthals.
  • Anthropology of the Entrepreneur
    Anthropology of the Entrepreneur
    This thesis defends economic personalism as the sufficient anthropological basis for understanding entrepreneurship. The first chapter explores the motivations for human action, particularly within the tradition of the philosophical anthropology. The main actor in the economy, the bearer of uncertainty, is the entrepreneur. In the second part, the different aspects of entrepreneurial activity are contrasted with each other: the alertness for hitherto unnoticed profit opportunities, the importance of ownership and the ability to forecast the future and to turn these plans into reality. The investigation of the function of the entrepreneur within the enterprise completes this discussion and leads to the confrontation of the anthropological concepts of methodological individualism and economic personalism. Currently, the tradition of economic personalism is more useful to remove the individual from macroeconomic utilization of mathematical models. Furthermore, entrepreneurial...
  • Stephen C. Lubkemann. Culture in Chaos: An Anthropology of the Social Condition in War
    Culture in Chaos: An Anthropology of the Social Condition in War
    Stephen C. Lubkemann
    Fought in the wake of a decade of armed struggle against colonialism, the Mozambican civil war lasted from 1977 to 1992, claiming hundreds of thousands of lives while displacing millions more. As conflicts across the globe span decades and generations, Stephen C.Lubkemann suggests that we need a fresh perspective on war when it becomes the context for normal life rather than an exceptional event that disrupts it. "Culture in Chaos" calls for a new point of departure in the ethnography of war that investigates how the inhabitants of war zones live under trying new conditions and how culture and social relations are transformed as a result. Lubkemann focuses on how Ndau social networks were fragmented by wartime displacement and the profound effect this had on gender relations. Demonstrating how wartime migration and post-conflict return were shaped by social struggles and interests that had little to do with the larger political reasons for the war, Lubkemann contests the...

    Food of the Gods
    Terence McKenna

  • ABBOTT, ELIZABETH. HISTORY OF MARRIAGE, A
    HISTORY OF MARRIAGE, A
    ABBOTT, ELIZABETH
    What does the "tradition of marriage" really look like? In A History of Marriage, Elizabeth Abbott paints an often surprising picture of this most public, yet most intimate, institution. Ritual of romance, or social obligation? Eternal bliss, or cult of domesticity? Abbott reveals a complex tradition that includes same-sex unions, arranged marriages, dowries, self-marriages, and child brides. Marriage--in all its loving, unloving, decadent, and impoverished manifestations--is revealed here through Abbott's infectious curiosity. "A History of Marriage amuses and entertains readers . . . sure to provoke and surprise."--The Globe and Mail "Ambitious and wide-ranging."--The New Yorker "A juicy, brilliantly insightful survey--as readable as it is intellectually sophisticated, alternately witty and moving."--The Village Voice
  • Н. И. Лобанова. Homo dicens. Homo sapiens. О человеке говорящем и Человеке разумном
    Homo dicens. Homo sapiens. О человеке говорящем и Человеке разумном
    Н. И. Лобанова
    Монография написана на стыке антропологии и философии языка. Задача книги состоит в том, чтобы углубить понимание онтологической сущности человека в ее взаимосвязи (обусловленности) с языком: то есть объяснить, как факт говорения (овладения языковой способностью) меняет человека и его бытие (как язык влияет на бытие человека человеком); какие онтологические условия необходимы для возникновения homo dicens (человека говорящего) в человекоподобном существе вида homo sapiens; при этом внимание акцентируется на проблеме становления личности и языка в условиях "второго рождения" или того, что М.К.Мамардашвили называл "человеческим самостроительством" "трудом жизни" по самосозиданию. Данная работа интересна, прежде всего, своим вдумчивым вопрошанием, поэтому она не представляет собой монолог, но всей своей интонацией и постановкой вопросов приглашает читателей к совместному размышлению и диалогу. Монография предназначена для всех, кто интересуется проблемами "человека говорящего и...
  • В. Д. Плахов. Homo Genialis за чертой нормальности
    Homo Genialis за чертой нормальности
    В. Д. Плахов
    В предлагаемой монографии гений и гениальность рассматриваются с позиций, которые еще не получили ни распространения, ни признания в научном мире. Автор подходит к гению и гениальности как феноменам общественной жизни, феноменам культуры, что и обусловило и содержание, и форму, и в целом философскую направленность проделанного им не следования.
  • Марина Могильнер. Homo imperii. История физической антропологии в России
    Homo imperii. История физической антропологии в России
    Марина Могильнер
    В книге Марины Могильнер рассматривается уникальный материал о становлении "неклассической" науки о человеке (его типах, расах, телесном строении и коллективных особенностях) во второй половине XIX и первой трети XX столетия. Деятельность Русского антропологического общества, история основания соответствующих кафедр в университетах, идейные заимствования из "колониальной" антропологии и географии, горячие дискуссии о расовой принадлежности и "русской" природе Пушкина и т.д. анализируются автором на фоне споров об этнографическом разнообразии и целостности империи, а также в процессе адаптации антропологии к советским условиям.

  • Elizabeth Tonkin. Narrating Our Pasts: The Social Construction of Oral History
    Narrating Our Pasts: The Social Construction of Oral History
    Elizabeth Tonkin
    In this book, Elizabeth Tonkin, an anthropologist, uses an interdisciplinary approach to investigate the construction and interpretation of oral histories. She argues for a deeper understanding of their oral and social characteristics. Oral accounts of past events are guides to the future, as well as being social activities in which tellers claim authority to speak to particular audiences. Like written history and literature, orality has its shaping genres and aesthetic conventions and, likewise, has to be interpreted through them. Tonkin illustrates her argument from a wide range of examples of memory, narration and oral tradition, including many from Europe and the Americas, and with a particular focus on oral histories from the Jlao Kru of Liberia.

    Philosophical Anthropology

    How do human beings become human? This question lies behind the so??“called human sciences. But these disciplines are scattered among many different departments and hold up a cracked mirror to humankind. This is why, in the view of Paul Ricoeur, we ne

  • Юваль Ной Харари. Sapiens. Краткая история человечества
    Sapiens. Краткая история человечества
    Юваль Ной Харари
    Сто тысяч лет назад Homo sapiens был одним из как минимум шести видов человека, живших на этой планете, - ничем не примечательным животным, которое играло в экосистеме роль не большую, чем гориллы, светлячки или медузы. Но около семидесяти тысяч лет назад загадочное изменение когнитивных способностей Homo sapiens превратило его в хозяина планеты и кошмар экосистемы. Как человек разумный сумел покорить мир? Что стало с другими видами человека? Когда и почему появились деньги, государства и религия? Как возникали и рушились империи? Почему почти все общества ставили женщин ниже мужчин? Как наука и капитализм стали господствующими вероучениями современной эры? Становились ли люди с течением времени счастливее? Какое будущее нас ожидает? Юваль Харари показывает, как ход истории формировал человеческое общество и действительность вокруг него. Его книга прослеживает связь между событиями прошлого и проблемами современности и заставляет читателя пересмотреть все устоявшиеся...
  • Scientific and mythological Ways of Knowing in Anthropology
    Scientific and mythological Ways of Knowing in Anthropology
    The theoretical situation of cultural anthropology today can be characterized as a "multiparadigmatic". Two of the competing ways of knowing in cultural analyses are the paradigms of interpretation as presented in the work of C. Geertz and the scientific model as represented by R. Rappaport. In both paradigms their theoretical and methodological differences have been emphasized. This book studies the similarities between the two cognitive paradigms in anthropology by comparing mythical and scientific ways of interpreting the cosmos with the interpretative and scientific ways of knowing in anthropology. To this purpose I have selected one version of creation myth, the Kaypulaquena myth of the Yucuna Indians from the Amazon, and one scientific model of interpreting the universe, the Big Bang Theory. The problem I address is how myth and science approach the world. The study focuses on similarities between the Yucuna mythical way of interpreting the world and...
