Moral Anthropology : A Critical Reader, Paperback / softback Book

Moral Anthropology : A Critical Reader Paperback / softback

Edited by Didier (Institute of Advanced Study, Princeton University) Fassin, Samuel Leze

Paperback / softback


This Reader is the first anthology to cover the growing field of moral anthropology and will be an essential resource for students and scholars interested in exploring the important issues involved.

Morality and ethics are increasingly invoked in the most diverse domains, from politics to economics, from war to sexuality, from international justice to biological research.

To interpret this phenomenon from a critical standpoint, anthropology offers unique perspectives.

This volume includes classical as well as recent material and sheds light on continuing debates about relativism and universalism, values and emotions, moral duty and ethical freedom, human rights and humanitarianism, the responsibility of the researcher and the regulation of research.

The carefully chosen texts are contextualised with lucid editorial material, including a substantial introduction.
