Summary
Since the politicization of anthropology in the 1970s, most anthropologists have been reluctant to approach the topic of universals - that is, phenomena that occur regularly in all known human societies. In this volume, Christoph Antweiler reasserts the importance of these cross-cultural commonalities for anthropological research and for life and co-existence beyond the academy. The question presented here is how anthropology can help us approach humanity in its entirety, understanding the world less as a globe, with an emphasis on difference, but as a planet, from a vantage point open to commonalities. -- from back cover
