The Subject of Virtue : An Anthropology of Ethics and Freedom, Hardback Book

The Subject of Virtue : An Anthropology of Ethics and Freedom Hardback

Part of the New Departures in Anthropology series

Description

The anthropology of ethics has become an important and fast-growing field in recent years.

This book argues that it represents not just a new subfield within anthropology but a conceptual renewal of the discipline as a whole, enabling it to take account of a major dimension of human conduct which social theory has so far failed adequately to address.

An ideal introduction for students and researchers in anthropology and related human sciences. * Shows how ethical concepts such as virtue, character, freedom and responsibility may be incorporated into anthropological analysis * Surveys the history of anthropology's engagement with morality * Examines the relevance for anthropology of two major philosophical approaches to moral life.
