Anthropology of Mind and Experience - ANTH4102

Year - 2020

The unit provides students with a basis for the understanding of anthropology in the context of current Western philosophical and scientific thought. It particularly explores the work of Claude Levi-Strauss in the light of existential phenomenological and psychoanalytic critiques. The aim is to deepen the students' critical knowledge of anthropological theory and the importance of comparative understanding in relation to the practice of ethnography.
