An anthropologist among the historians and other essays pdf
Social Anthropology and Social Science HistoryPaul R. Dupee, Jr. In the s, when the social science history movement emerged in the United States, leading to the founding of the Social Science History Association, a simultaneous movement arose in which historians looked to cultural anthropology for inspiration. Although both movements involved historians turning to social sciences for theory and method, they reflected very different views of the nature of the historical enterprise. Cultural anthropology, most notably as preached by Clifford Geertz, became a means by which historians could find a theoretical basis in the social sciences for rejecting a scientific paradigm. This article examines this development while also exploring the complex ways cultural anthropology has embraced—and shunned—history in recent years. Anthropologists pride themselves on working at the periphery, one among many features of the discipline that tend not to endear them to their fellow social scientists.
