Clifford Geertz on Religion
167,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The American anthropologist Clifford Geertz (1926-2006) has presented a description of religion which has made him one of the most influential key thinkers in the study of religion. His ethnographic work, based on minute research mainly in Morocco and Indonesia, is impressive and testifies to a great stylistic ability. Moreover, his theory about culture and the role played by religion as a cultural system within it, can be considered as being one of the most intriguing and widely discussed conceptual frameworks brought forth up to now. Geertz work is influenced not only by Durkheim and Weber, but also by Wittgenstein, Ryle and Ricoeur. It reflects an empirical-descriptive, hermeneutic-phenomenological approach to the study of religion, focusing on the meaning of symbolic action: on how symbols function as vehicles for meaning. Geertz gives a guideline which can be used in the interpretation of culture and religion. This guideline consists of a concept of culture which is semiotic and textual in character, not a private but a public matter, and not at all an occult entity which is hardly perceptible but a form of social action which can be thickly described. In this introductory text Geertz work on religion will be discussed in the context of the history of the study of religion in general, and in relation to rival approaches in the anthropology of religion such as structuralism and cognitive approaches in particular. After having dealt with his major intellectual roots and ties, we will look at his work on the religion of Java and on Balinese culture, and at his contribution to the study of Islamic culture in Morocco. Next to an analysis of this ethnographic work on religion, we will consider the theoretical and methodological implications of his findings for the comparative study of religion. Finally we will evaluate the criticism on and the influences of Geertz work, and its significance for future research.

Remembering Childhood in the Middle East
51,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Growing up is a universal experience, but the particularities of homeland, culture, ethnicity, religion, family, and so on make every childhood unique. To give Western readers insight into what growing up in the Middle East was like in the twentieth century, this book gathers thirty-six original memoirs written by Middle Eastern men and women about their own childhoods. Elizabeth Warnock Fernea, a well-known writer of books and documentary films about women and the family in the Middle East, has collected stories of childhoods spent in Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, and Turkey. The accounts span the entire twentieth century, a full range of ethnicities and religions, and the social spectrum from aristocracy to peasantry. They are grouped by eras, for which Fernea provides a concise historical sketch, and include a brief biography of each contributor. The introduction by anthropologist Robert A. Fernea sets the memoirs in the larger context of Middle Eastern life and culture. As a collection, the memoirs offer an unprecedented opportunity to look at the same period in history in the same region of the world from a variety of very different remembered experiences. At times dramatic, humorous, or tragic, and always deeply felt, the memoirs document the diversity and richness of people's lives in the modern Middle East.

Reflections on Fieldwork in Morocco
51,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In this landmark study, now celebrating thirty years in print, Paul Rabinow takes as his focus the fieldwork that anthropologists do. How valid is the process? To what extent do the cultural data become artifacts of the interaction between anthropologist and informants? Having first published a more standard ethnographic study about Morocco, Rabinow here describes a series of encounters with his informants in that study, from a French innkeeper clinging to the vestiges of a colonial past, to the rural descendants of a seventeenth-century saint. In a new preface Rabinow considers the thirty-year life of this remarkable book and his own distinguished career.
