About this item

Specifically elaborating on the posture and construction of alterity and difference in anthropology, this volume distinguishes between three central strands of the ontological turn, namely worldviews, materialities, and politics. The volume provides a succinct overview of the ontological turns taken in anthropology during the last decade, situating it within the discipline’s changing configuration. Further, presenting empirically rich case studies it elaborates on the potentiality and challenges which the ontological turn’s perspectives and approaches may have to offer.
