About this product
- DescriptionIn this book, D. Z. Zhong establishes a methodological principle for cross-cultural research, called anthropological fideism. While anthropologists take for granted that natives don't really believe the unintelligible or inexplicable things they say, and what they say should express a deeper social meaning, Zhong contends that if we have a translation manual that can interpret a foreign language, and if natives are asserting honestly, then what natives say still express natives' belief, matter how absurd it seems.
- Author BiographyD. Z. Zhong has a Master's Degree in Anthropology from National Tsing Hua University. He is Research Assistant in the College of Medicine, National Taiwan University.
