Could Sahlins's Affluent Society thesis be deployed to disprove Polanyi's Disembedded Economy thesis?
6 Replies

Polanyi characterizes the shift to market capitalism by arguing that individuals act upon more maximizing strategies in which they are driven by profit-based gains rather than the subsistence…Continue

Great, I was hoping you would msg back! I put my dissertation to the side for the moment whilst preparing something for something called bitcoin. I have written almost a whole paper from my dissertation though and hoping to try publish it soon, but most importantly I need to translate it into turkish for the participants and some folks over there (which is bloody hard). However I will definitely be following up on the topics of the Sea in relation to the commons later as I have an interest in people relation to land (and therefore how this relationship interacts with the one at sea). I would absolutely love to read it (though cannot promise feedback for a few weeks as just started a PGCE). Sorry I know this is a bit of a blurb, wanted to I am very enthusiastic about seeing where we can crossover at some point? what about you?

The formalist vs substantivist pair are present over time, but people use them differently and in combination. Short of advising you to read the relevant sections of our book Economic Anthropology, I can only wish you luck for revision and look forward to the next instalment.

Chelsea, I attach here a great essay by Jens Beckert on how Polanyi's radical concept of (dis)embeddedness has been emasculated by the new economic sociology. It is not possible to do this in a blog comment. The book it comes from is Market and Society: The Great Transformation Today (Cambridge 2009). Thanks for the posts and good luck with your revision! I have so much to say about this one, I wouldn't know where to start.

Chelsea, my pleasure. I know a bit about what you mean about British social anthropology, which was largely what I studied at Cornell in the late 1960s. One could easily believe that the anthropological world revolved around an axis formed by Malinowski, Radcliffe-Brown, Evans-Pritchard and the Manchester School, with such folk as Meyer Fortes, Edmund Leach, and Rodney Needham offshoots related in various ways to the central tradition. The Americans and the French were acknowledged but largely dismissed as of little importance and the Germans and Russians rarely mentioned at all. Those of us in East Asian studies heard about Fei Xiao-tung, Malinowski's eminent Chinese student, and Nakane Chie, the great Japanese social anthropologist who studied with Raymond Firth—but that was pretty much area-specific knowledge. It is interesting how different the history of anthropology looks when approached from different parts of the world.

Chelsea, you learn more about me and what I do by pointing your browser to www.wordworks.jp

The short version is that having got a Ph.D. and then been young and clueless I busted out of academia, followed the very smart woman I married to Japan, stumbled into a job as an English-language copywriter with a Japanese advertising agency, then, when it was time to move on, joined my wife as a partner in our company The Word Works. We get some original writing assignments, but our bread and butter is high quality translation, Japanese to English. We do well enough that I can pursue anthropology and social network analysis as serious hobbies.
