Reclaiming a scientific anthropology
AltaMira Press, 28 sep. 2008 - 229 páginas
"A strong advocate for anthropology as a science, Lawrence Kuznar reviews the recent challenges to this ideology from creationists and "scientific" racists on one side and postmodernists, marxists and feminists on the other. Moreover, Kuznar provides a brief review of anthropology as a science, summarizes major theoretical works in anthropology and other fields on the science/humanism debate, and offers several important case examples from cultural anthropology and archaeology showing science in action. An interesting, provocative book for anthropologists and ideal for advanced undergraduate and graduate classes in theory and method."--BOOK JACKET.
