About this product
- DescriptionWhat is existential anthropology, and how would you define it? What has been gained by using existential perspectives in your fieldwork and writing? Editors Michael Jackson and Albert Piette each invited anthropologists on both sides of the Atlantic to join in addressing these questions and exploring how various approaches to the human condition might be brought together on the levels of method and of theory. Both editors also bring their own perspective: While Jackson has drawn on phemelogy, deploying the concepts of intersubjectivity, lifeworld, experience, existential mobility and event, Piette has drawn on Heidegger's Dasein-analysis, and developed a phemegraphical method for the observation and description of human beings in their singularity and ever-changing situations.
