Anthropology & Philosophy : Dialogues on Trust and Hope Hardback
Edited by Sune Liisberg, Esther Oluffa Pedersen, Anne Line Dalsgard
Part of the Anthropology and.... series
The present book is no ordinary anthology, but rather a workroom in which anthropologists and philosophers initiate a dialogue on trust and hope, two important topics for both fields of study.
The book combines work between scholars from different universities in the U.S. and Denmark. Thus, besides bringing the two disciplines in dialogue, it also cuts across differences in national contexts and academic style.
The interdisciplinary efforts of the contributors demonstrate how such a collaboration can result in new and challenging ways of thinking about trust and hope.
Reading the dialogues may, therefore, also inspire others to work in the productive intersection between anthropology and philosophy.
