Abstract

The theme of mutuality has lately emerged in anthropology by the hand of two of our most influential contemporary thinkers. Yet they explore it in apparently unrelated guises: by the hand of Johannes Fabian, mutuality emerges as a methodological preoccupation in discussions about fieldwork ethics referring to the way in which anthropologist and informant are engaged in processes of co-responsibility (2001, 2007); by the hand of Marshall Sahlins, mutuality is a constitutive principle in personal ontogeny that allows for a theoretical re-founding of kinship studies (2011).
