Book Description

The question of ignorance occupies a central place in anthropological theory and practice. This volume argues that the concept of ignorance has largely been pursued as the opposite of knowledge or even its obverse. Though they cover wide empirical ground - from clients of a fertility treatment center in New York to families grappling with suicide in Greenland - contributors share a commitment to understanding the concept as a productive, social practice. Ultimately, The Anthropology of Ignorance asks whether an academic commitment to knowledge can be squared with lived significance of ignorance and how taking it seriously might alter anthropological research practices.


Product Description

Review

"The Anthropology of Ignorance: An Ethnographic Approach brings an interesting balance of theory , conceptualisation, and case studies, mainly for scholars and not for undergraduates. As a matter of fact, many future essay s and books could be written thanks to the doors this book just opened." - European Journal of American Studies

Book Description

An exploration of the concept of ignorance and the many practices that depend upon its recognition
