I just finished reading Kohn's How Forests Think for the second time -- once during my first term in grad school and now in the penultimate quarter of the Master's program -- and I can honestly say that his exploration of an "ecology of selves" is a formative component of my approach to Anthropology. More clearly than other social theorists, Kohn breaks down several binaries caught up in that persistent Cartesian worldview, whose destruction is the project of many postmodern social scholars. In this re-read, I especially latched onto the way that he leans on Peirce to smear "reality."
