image by imelenchon

“Anthropology is a conflicted discipline, perpetually in search of ways to escape its condition, perpetually failing to find them…fissures within cultural anthropology as such, the heart of the discipline, have proved increasingly prominent and less easy to contain.”

– Clifford Geertz, Culture War, 1995
