Summary
Philosophy and anthropology have long debated questions of difference: rationality versus irratinality, abstraction versus concreteness, modern versus premodern. In this book, Michael Jackson encourages philosophers and anthropologists to mine the space between localized and globalized perspectives, to resolve empirically the distinctions between life and specific forms of life. Drawing on a lifetime of ethnographic fieldwork in West Africa and Aboriginal Australia, Jackson resets the language and logic of academic thought from the standpoint of other lifeworks
