Shelves: reread, anthropology
Excelente introducción no sólo a la antropología en general, sino al modo de pensar del antropólogo. Un texto rico en reflexiones (válidas no sólo en su área, sino de tendencia universal), me ha parecido bien estructurado e informativo. Recomendado para todos, pues pone en contexto no solamente nuestra área de estudios, sino nuestra naturaleza como seres humanos.

Marc Augé is a French anthropologist. His career can be divided into three stages, reflecting shifts in both his geographical focus and theoretical development: early (African), middle (European) and late (Global). These successive stages do not involve a broadening of interest or focus as such, but rather the development of a theoretical apparatus able to meet the demands of the growing convictio ...more
