Hayat dan Karya: Antropolog sebagai Penulis dan Pengarang

3.88  ·  Rating details ·  202 Ratings  ·  9 Reviews
Noted anthropologist Clifford Geertz analyzes the writings of anthropologists, specifically ethnographers. What makes a reader take an account seriously, he argues, is the ability of the researcher to capture on paper the experience of having been to a place, not just his ability to report facts. Geertz compares the literary styles of Claude Levi-Strauss, Edward Evans-Prit ...more

An amazing mix of literary criticism and ethnological overview. I was worried that since I haven't read most of the source material, that I'd be a bit in the dark, but Geertz does an excellent job of making the writings in question (and even the work of Foucault and Barthes that he uses to look at them) accessible.

As an added bonus, for me at least, this appears to be the unmentioned source text for an ethnographic methods course I took a few years back. Whereas that was fairly ham-fisted and mo

Geertz is my favorite anthropologist and in this text talks about how anthropologists write--admittedly, he writes more aesthetically than most, and has been accused of being non-objective, but no anthropologist can report on a culture without the bias of his upbringing. He doesn't exaggerate, or fabricate, but relays things as he sees them--as beautiful, fascinating, sensual, etc. He's an artist really.

Ignoro qué tan conveniente es leer un libro acerca de la autoría de ciertas etnografías cuando aún no las he leído. Mínimamente me ha servido de fuente de sugerencias de lectura. Máximamente me pareció bastante esclaceredora la discusión que hace sobre cómo se manifiesta la relación entre autor(a) y sujeto descrito a través de la narrativa etnográfica y del papel de la misma en la conformación de la disciplina. Geertz describe el carácter co-occurrente, concurrente y mutuamente interferente de l ...more

An important resource for anthropologists.
Oliver Terrones
Texto clásico para entender la deconstrucción literaria norteamericana en la teoría antropológica. Lo que de algún modo puede llevarnos a: la etnografía artística.
karya geertz ini seolah ingin melebur dikotomi antara pengarang dan penulis dalam sebuah narasi etnografis. Antropologi sebagai etnosains sejak 1920-an telah menghadapi kebingungan epistmologi dalam menentukan subjek kajian. karya-karya antropolog klasik yang ditelaah Geertz dalam buku ini mencerminkan peluang bagi etnosains menapaki lembaran baru etnografi, tantangan bagi Antropologi melihat manusia mengorganisasikan pengalaman-pengalaman dan gagasan dalam sejarah materialisme.
Meta-anthropologists are, at the end of their fieldwork, allowed to take on the name Clifford--signifying a special combination of observing from the cliff and participating as one fords the river of fieldwork.
