Abstract

This article is a discussion of the theoretical implications of the observation that the ethnographic encounter is pervaded by events that remain 'unsaid', that is, a long and diversified series of ethnographic occurrences that do not depend on discursive communication between the ethnographer and the people studied. The essay focuses on the long history of quantification in ethnographic practice by reference to Bourdieu's notion of strategy. Finally, by taking recourse to the work of Donald Davidson, the essay attempts to overcome the sociocentric dispositions that continue to be buried within normal modes of anthropological practice.
