Unlike all the others works concerning the history of anthropology as a single discipline in relation to a range of different traditions, this volume, Histories of Anthropology, offers a representation of anthropology at the plural. In addition to what is widely known, this approach embraces some disciplinary traditions that are still mostly unknown to non-specialists. The aim is to offer a privileged insight as to how the main traditions have been accepted, adapted and adjusted in different cultural and historical-geographical contexts, as well as to define the current role of the anthropological approach in such contexts. It is both a book of anthropology and cultural history, in which the discipline is called upon to come to terms with colonialism and decolonisation, science and ethnosciences, nationalisms and imperialisms. It is a book that aims to exhort world anthropology to lead by example, to escape from a hegemony that no longer looks like matrix of relevant knowledge.

Abstract

Unlike all the others works concerning the history of anthropology as a single discipline in relation to a range of different traditions, this volume, Histories of Anthropology, offers a representation of anthropology at the plural. In addition to what is widely known, this approach embraces some disciplinary traditions that are still mostly unknown to non-specialists. The aim is to offer a privileged insight as to how the main traditions have been accepted, adapted and adjusted in different cultural and historical-geographical contexts, as well as to define the current role of the anthropological approach in such contexts. It is both a book of anthropology and cultural history, in which the discipline is called upon to come to terms with colonialism and decolonisation, science and ethnosciences, nationalisms and imperialisms. It is a book that aims to exhort world anthropology to lead by example, to escape from a hegemony that no longer looks like matrix of relevant knowledge.
