In March, I arrived at the following pithy remark.
Anthropology is to politics what metaphysics is to science. Anthropology is politics without mandate, just as metaphysics is science without method.I believe there is an anthropological "I", a locus of becoming, just as there is a metaphysical "it", or locus of being. I am to culture what it is to nature.
It is the proper theme of philosophy and I am the proper theme of poetry.
