What is Existential Anthropology?, Hardback Book

What is Existential Anthropology? Hardback

Edited by Michael Jackson, Albert Piette


What is existential anthropology, and how would you define it?

What has been gained by using existential perspectives in your fieldwork and writing?

Editors Michael Jackson and Albert Piette each invited anthropologists on both sides of the Atlantic to join in addressing these questions and exploring how various approaches to the human condition might be brought together on the levels of method and of theory.

Both editors also bring their own perspective: While Jackson has drawn on phenomenology, deploying the concepts of intersubjectivity, lifeworld, experience, existential mobility and event, Piette has drawn on Heidegger's Dasein-analysis, and developed a phenomenographical method for the observation and description of human beings in their singularity and ever-changing situations.
