"Hi, McCreery, I don't understand why it is so difficult to look for this book in Hong Kong. It even surprises me there is no university has the copy of it. Is the other Michael Agar's book you would recommend?"

"Cecilia, thank you for the kind remarks about my musings. When I read, I am reminded of an experience a very long time (more than a decade?) ago. I had been invited to give a writing workshop at the Society for Applied Anthropology (SfAA) meeting…"

"Thanks for your answered. It is very clear and open windows!!! I agree about the boundaries, there is a nice article by Stocking about it. The question is now how we face the fast style of life with the tools that we have? And how continue very…"

"Cecilia, I agree that we need to rethink what anthropology, conceived as a "discipline," is. My own approach has two important assumptions. 1. What we occupy is not a domain with clear boundaries but, instead, a node or region in the…"

"I was reading and I wondering two questions again. One, it is an old metaphoric sentence by Lévi-Strauss about social and cultural saying that it is like carbonic paper, dived social and cultural doesnt go on. We separate in order to study,…"

"I do agree the limitations that you mentioned. Indeed, regarding to Hong Kong, I think the limitation is also existing between urban and rural community. Although I am living in the same place, the village communities in the New Territories are…"

"Yat Hang, Rereading my last post, I arrived at this paragraph, You are writing to us from Hong Kong. Your name sounds Chinese, I am guessing Cantonese. If this is true and you were to do a study in the New Territories, you would not be that…"

"First, I would like to reframe the question. The critical limitations are not specific to anthropology. They are generically human. Human curiosity may have no limits, and it is a basic feature of human languages that we can, in principle, say an…"

""Defeatist"? Not at all.  "Realistic"? My experience suggests that it is. It began in Taiwan, before we moved to Japan.  When Ruth and I arrived in Taiwan in 1969, I intended to model myself on Victor Turner. It…"
