"In recent decades anthropologists have learned to think of themselves as prisoners of text. In the new orthodoxy, ethnography is best viewed as a certain kind of literary genre, textual criticism provides a master theory for understanding all manner of social and cultural phenomena, and young anthropologists show a reluctance to leave the comfort zone of the archive and the library where, whatever else happens, no unruly interlocutor is going to do something unseemly like answering back. This brilliant and humane volume promises to put paid to all that. Anthropology is the product of an encounter with the world we call fieldwork, and fieldwork is an edgy business in which researchers necessarily put themselves at intellectual, political and ethical risk. This volume restores that edgy business to the heart of our concerns, and reminds anthropologists that their distinctive way of engaging the world can be the source of real intellectual excitement, and as worthy of sophisticated theoretical reflection as anything they do."--Jonathan Spencer, University of Edinburgh
Brain, body, and world are united in a complex dance of circular causation and extended computational activity. In Being There, Andy Clark weaves these several threads into a pleasing whole and goes on to address foundational questions concerning the new tools and techniques needed to make sense of the emerging sciences of the embodied mind. Clark brings together ideas and techniques from robotics, neuroscience, infant psychology, and artificial intelligence. He addresses a broad range of adaptive behaviors, from cockroach locomotion to the role of linguistic artifacts in higher-level thought.
The first book-length examination of Jerzy Kosinski in more than a decade, Being There in the Age of Trump goes beyond conventional literary and film analysis to a larger interdisciplinary and cultural study of the issues that Kosinski so presciently explored in both the novel and the film Being There.

When searching for someone to help them reflect upon and improve their lives, people tend to be drawn towards those who are compassionate, committed and wise. This book is aimed at those who recognise these qualities in themselves and wish to develop their capacity to engage with and help others. The authors argue for ways of approaching helping and counselling that are rooted in care and commitment, drawing upon the experiences and practice wisdom of youth workers, housing support and hostel workers, the clergy and those working in a religious setting, educators and settlement and community workers. They explore the key characteristics of those who counsel and teach and examine aspects of the helping process, focusing on living life well, knowing and being oneself, relating to others and working to make change possible. This book will be essential reading for students on professional training programmes in youth work, community education, ministry, social care and counselling.

A group of ethnologists and anthropologists demonstrate creative ways of relating phenomenology to the study of culture. In a detailed introduction the reader is given an overview of how perspectives like 'being' and 'life-world' can be applied to studies of everyday life. The historical background as well as the value of fieldwork and the importance of simply 'being there' are also presented. Seven scholars write-about diaspora, multiculturalism, xenophobia, and violence; about Nordic theme parks, European regionalism, and the celebration of national holidays. Experience, body, emotions, place, action and material culture are key concepts in this book. The authors show how culture can be understood from how it 'happens', more than what it 'is', how the world became filled with meanings rather than interpretations. The book is intended for a broad spectrum of readers within the fields of cultural and behavioural sciences. Contributors include Nils Gilje, professor of philosophy and cultural studies, Michael Jackson, renowned professor of anthropology, and Jonas Frykman, professor of ethnology.
