    "Der Wissenschaftler Clifford Geertz setzt sich in seiner Besprechung von Patrick Tierneys 'Darkness in El Dorado: How Scientists and Journalists Devastated the Amazon' vor allem mit den schweren Vorwrfen auseinander, die Tierney fr seine Kritik an den Ethnologen Napoleon Chagnon und Jim Neel einstecken musste. Zwar findet auch er das Buch streckenweise substanzlos oder schlicht unfair, doch wurde fr ihn bei der Lektre auch klar, dass etwas an der Arbeit von Chagnon und Neel, die jahrzehntelang die Yanomami erforscht haben, grundlegend falsch war: "The problem was that the anthros (and the mdicos), reductionist to the core, conceived the object of their study not as a people but as a population. The Yanomami were a control group in an inquiry centered elsewhere."

Book review, full text only: (on: Turner, Mark: "Cognitive Dimensions of Social Science: The Way We Think About Politics, Economics, Law, and Society", Oxford/UK etc. 2001: Oxford University Press).

  • full text: "In extending the idea of 'cognitive studies' beyond psychology, artificial intelligence, information processing and linguistics to the social sciences as a whole, Turner has both deepened that idea and set it free of scientistic rigidities. His discussions of 'conceptual blending,' of 'the descent of meaning,' of analogy and metaphor, and of choice provide a powerful new framework for work in anthropology, literature, and rhetoric on the one hand and politics, law, and economics on the other. 'The second cognitive revolution,' the one concerned with meaning and understanding, seems at last at hand."

Comments, at: Cultures, socits, et territoires: hommage Clifford Geertz. Conference, May 4-6, 2001; organized by: (1) Municipal Council of Sefrou/MAR; (2) Princeton Universitys Institute for the Transregional Study of the Contemporary Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia (Princeton/N.J./USA); (3) King Abdul-Aziz Al Saoud Foundation of Casablanca/MAR (Fondation du Roi Abdul-Aziz al-Saoud pour les Etudes Islamiques et les Sciences Humaines de Casablanca).

  • "It was particularly gratifying, commented Geertz, because "Anthropologists are not always welcomed back to the site of their field studies."
  • The conference (=  the Sefrou Council's twelfth annual colloquium) brought together over one hundred scholars from Morocco and the Middle East, Europe, Asia and North America. Sefrou was the site of much of Professor Geertz's fieldwork as well as that of a generation of anthropologists working on the Maghreb under his direction. Papers presented at the conference dealt with a variety of issues central to Professor Geertz's pioneering work in the field of anthropology and, in particular, his work on North African cultures.
  • Le colloque invite une rflexion sur la contribution de lanthropologie la connaissance des socits maghrbines en partant de lexemple marocain. Les dbats seront centrs autour de quatre thmes principaux :
    1. Petites villes et mtropoles: coexistence, dbats identitaires, multiculturalismes anciens et nouveaux.
    2. Cultures et pratique culturelles: comparaison et usage des diffrences.
    3. Histoire(s), mmoire(s) et espace(s) dans la construction des socits maghrbines modernes et contemporaines.
    4. Discours et pratique du changement: transformation et utopie du pass et du prsent. Quels cadres pour les vies futures ?

  • "Clifford Geertz, uno de los antropologos mas influyentes de nuestro tiempo, discute en este libro algunos de los mas acuciantes problemas a los que se enfrentan los intelectuales hoy en dia. En esta coleccion de ensayos, tan personales como reveladores, explora la naturaleza de su trabajo antropologico y se constituye en portavoz de su generacion, la que salio a escena despues de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Sus reflexiones, escritas en un estilo a la vez ameno e informal, transmiten al lector temas que van desde el relativismo moral hasta la relacion entre las diferencias culturales y psicologicas, desde la cultura de la diversidad hasta el conflicto etnico en la politica actual. Geertz, que en un principio considero desarrollar su carrera en el entorno de la filosofia, comienza explicando como se deslizo hacia el movimiento revolucionario de la antropologia simbolica. Su orientacion filosofica, no obstante, le ayudo a enmarcar el papel de la antropologia en amplios circulos intelectuales y a acercarse a la obra de pensadores tan relevantes como Charles Taylor, Thomas Kuhn, William James y Jerome Bruner. En este libro, Geertz discute con la obra de estos autores en tanto explora cuestiones relativas a la filosofia politica, la psicologia y la religion, temas que le han intrigado desde siempre y que ahora, a la luz del pensamiento posmoderno y del multiculturalismo, adquieren especial relevancia para el. El texto ofrece debates penetrantes sobre conceptos tales como la nacion, la identidad, el pais o el yo, a la vez que nos recuerda que sus significados no estan categoricamente fijados, sino que se desarrollan y cambian a traves del tiempo y del espacio."

The quoted text: "The ethical dilemmas of modern life are all too often discussed in general terms via presumptive rules and imagined examples. In Mortal Secrets, Klitzman and Bayer describe HIV-positive individuals struggling to decide when and when not to inform lovers, relatives, or friends of their condition through the troubled, eloquent, and above all concrete testimonies of those individuals themselves. The result is a powerful and moving portrait of moral deciding as it actually happenspractically, specifically, in the midst of fear, suffering, and the incertitudes of love."--Clifford Geertz

  • see the report: only): "ANTHROPOLOGY OF INTRODUCTIONS: A professor emeritus at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton University, Clifford Geertz, delivered the ninth annual Irving Howe memorial lecture at the CUNY Graduate Center. Mr. Geertz's topic was: "What Was the Third World Revolution?"; A professor at CUNY Graduate Center, Morris Dickstein, introduced CUNY Graduate Center's provost, William Kelly, who introduced another CUNY Graduate Center professor, Talal Asad, who, in turn, introduced Mr. Geertz. When Mr. Kelly's kudos-filled introduction of Mr. Asad was far longer and more elaborate than that of Mr. Asad's of Mr. Geertz. Mr. Asad explained that introductions are not overtly rational, otherwise the most eminent among the crowd, Mr. Geertz, would be introducing the other speakers. Mr. Asad said rather, the purpose of introductions is to honor. The Oxford-educated Mr. Asad described Mr. Geertz among the two or three most renowned anthropologists of the last 50 years. The audience chuckled when Mr. Asad added self-effacingly, "and the other two are not me." After this lengthy process, the audience laughed when Mr. Geertz began by saying, "I feel well introduced." Among those in attendance were political philosopher Michael Walzer, who serves as co-editor of Dissent magazine; philanthropist Max Palevsky, who sponsored the lecture series, and many others."

Juni 2004, 20 Uhr, im Großen Saal von Schloss Neuhardenberg fortgesetzt. Es debattieren Gustavo Gutirrez, Begrnder der Befreiungstheologie, Professor fr Theologie und Sozialwissenschaften an der Katholischen Universität in Lima, und der Anthropologe Clifford Geertz, Professor fr Sozialwissenschaften am Institute of Advanced Study in Princeton, der neben Claude Lvi-Strauss zu den einflußreichsten Vertretern seines Faches gehört. Der Dialog wird von dem bekannten Pariser Kulturanthropologen Constantin von Barloewen moderiert." 
    Thematische Einleitung: "Leben wir in einer leeren Transzendenz der Technokratie? Ist die Entzauberung der Welt gescheitert? Welche sind die verlorenen Dimensionen des Menschseins, wie sie sich in religiösen Systemen der Weltzivilisation widerspiegeln? Erscheint das Entzauberte in neuer Gestalt, in gebrochenem Zustand? Erleben wir heute eine Renaissance des Religiösen, die zum Teil an den traditionellen Kirchen und Konfessionen vorbeigeht? Läßt sich von einer »religionsfreundlichen Gottlosigkeit« sprechen? Wo liegen die Bruchstellen des Religiösen heute? Muß in einer unbersichtlichen Welt der Wissenschaft und Technologie der Vernunftbegriff als erschöpft betrachtet werden? Rcken mythisch-religiöse Welterklärungen fr die Identitätsfindung des Menschen zur Überwindung des Sinnverlusts wieder in den Vordergrund?"(siehe:
