Abstract:

This volume comprises the collected work of the author, a noted anthropologist. At the end of 60 years of academic life, during which the author attended or organized a number of conferences and symposia at the national and international levels, delivered endowment lectures and keynote addresses, and published numerous scholarly papers, he chose to bring out this collection of 30 essays, organized into three sections. The first section reflects on how anthropology can illuminate the larger concerns about humanity as a whole, such as the interactions between biological and cultural processes, human motivations and their socially approved fulfillment, the widening of human horizons culminating in globalization, common human rationality in the midst of cultural diversity, and interactions between generic human nature and environmental forces. The second section comprises critical essays on some important theories and issues. The third section looks at certain ethnographic studies conducted by the author, each representing an important facet of social, economic, political, or religious life among the tribal and rural communities. -- From publisher's website.
