An anthropology for contemporaneous worlds by Marc Augé ( Book )
39 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in French and English and held by 649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Under what conditions is anthropology possible today, when a crisis of social meaning - a crisis that makes it more difficult to conceive and manage our relation to the other - makes the need for anthropology appear more clearly than ever before? This book sets forth at least the beginning of an answer to this question." "Positioned in opposition not only to political theories of universalization and homogenization more or less tied to the theme of "the end of history," but also to "postmodernist" versions of anthropological theories of multiplicity and relativism, the author argues that social anthropology, through its self-critical tradition, is fully capable of adapting to the accelerated change that is continuously recomposing relations between universalism and particularism. It is for social anthropology to select, analyze, and understand the new modes of sociality and the new spaces in which (not without calamities and contradictions) these utterly new recompositions, a major aspect of our contemporary world, manifest themselves."--BOOK JACKET

A sense for the other : the timeliness and relevance of anthropology by Marc Augé ( Book )
7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book outlines an approach to anthropology that focuses on negotiating the social meanings we and others use in making sense of the world, and on the processes of identification that create the difference between same and other. Why trace a line of demarcation between societies thought to warrant and require anthropological observation and others (namely, our own) thought to demand a different type of study? Once anthropology, through its study of rites, takes social meaning as its principal object, the necessity for a "generalized anthropology" that includes the entire planet seems obvious, especially in view of the rapid proliferation of new networks of communication and the integration of individuals into those networks

Non-places by Marc Augé ( Book )
10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Shopping malls, motorways, airport lounges - we are all familiar with these curious spaces which are both everywhere and nowhere. But only now do we have a coherent analysis of their far-reaching effects on public and private experience. Marc Auge has become their anthropologist, and has written a timely and original book." "An ever-increasing proportion of our lives is spent in supermarkets, airports and hotels, on motorways or in front of TVs, computers and cash machines. This invasion of the world by what Marc Auge calls "non-space" results in a profound alteration of awareness: something we perceive, but only in a partial and incoherent manner. Auge uses the concept of "supermodernity" to describe a situation of excessive information and excessive space. In this fascinating essay he seeks to establish an intellectual armature for an anthropology of supermodernity."--BOOK JACKET

19 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
L'oubli est nécessaire à la société comme à l'individu. Il faut savoir oublier pour goûter la saveur du présent, de l'instant et de l'attente, mais la mémoire elle-même a besoin de l'oubli : il faut oublier le passé récent pour retrouver le passé ancien. Tel est l'argument de ce petit traité, écrit par un ethnologue à partir de ses propres souvenirs de terrain

8 editions published in 1998 in French and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Le bon historien ressemble à l'ogre de légende, disait Marc Bloch. Là où il flaire la chair humaine, il sait que là est son gibier." Jacques Le Goff n'a guère eu à forcer son talent pour se glisser à son tour dans la peau de l'ogre. La métaphore illustre l'énergie physique et intellectuelle, la force de travail de l'historien
