"I highly recommend 'Women, Culture and Development' edited by Martha Nussbaum and John Glover, especially the contribution by Benhabib for a solid and reflexive debate of some of the issues surrounding the practice and intervention."

"Aboubacar Barry launched a critique of Nathan in another context and Nathan replied. There is also this piece in bad English by the Circabolition campaigner, Michel Herve."

Sexual mutilation and ethnocentrism

I have a question which concerns a quite recent controversy about ethnocentrism, that has been raised by the the French ethno-psychiatrist Tobie Nathan. In fact, I am looking for the writings in which he says that we cannot condemn (morally and politically) practices of sexual mutilation in certain countries of the South, because this kind of assessment would be a new and hidden form of ethnocentrism. I know that his position has been criticized by other French anthropologists, but I don't know…See More

Nicolas,

You could post a blog item under a header like sexual mutilation and ethnocentrism. This will go on the front page.

I have a question which concerns a quite recent controversy about ethnocentrism, that has been raised by the the French ethno-psychiatrist Tobie Nathan. In fact, I am looking for the writings in which he says that we cannot condemn (morally and politically) practices of sexual mutilation in certain countries of the South, because this kind of assessment would be a new and hidden form of ethnocentrism. I know that his position has been criticized by other French anthropologists, but I don't know who and where. That's why I would like to find these texts too, at least the most significant ones, and have a global view on this debate.
