[Anthropology] Clifford Geertz (1926-2006)



IAS News


Was just reading his cockfight essay several days ago.

Despite converting to sociological field as of now, I still have fond memory of the shock while first encountering his "interpretative" perspective and peculiar narrative style.

I will miss his subtle and delicate ways of keep approaching the relative truth, which are rarities in social sciences nowadays.
