uses of diversity and the future of ethnocentrism,
in: Michigan Quarterly Review, vol. 25 no. 1 (1986), pp. 105-123
by Clifford Geertz
THE ARTICLE CRITICIZES SOME RECENT DISCUSSIONS OF CULTURAL DIFFERENCE BY THE ANTHROPOLOGIST CLAUDE LEVI-STRAUSS AND THE PHILOSOPHER RICHARD RORTY. IN OPPOSITION TO THEIR CALL FOR BENIGN ETHNOCENTRISM, THE PAPER PROPOSES AN APPROACH TO CULTURAL DIVERSITY THAT EMPHASIZES ITS PERVASIVENESS AND THE NOVEL FORMS IN WHICH IT NOW APPEARS.
