The two faces of mutuality: contemporary themes in anthropology.
(Full text available)
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).
