LSE Review of Books: The Subject of Anthropology

Published: Wednesday 6 June, 2012



Margherita Margiotti reviews Henrietta L. Moore’s The Subject of Anthropology: Gender, Symbolism and Psychoanalysis for the LSE Review of Books.

In this excellent and compelling modern classic, Henrietta Moore invites the forging of new alliances between anthropology and psychoanalysis in their common concerns for culture, representation and the nature of symbols. Anthropologists are encouraged to work toward a theory of imagery, fantasy, and the pre-oedipal to shed new light to the classic Durkheimian question of the relation between the social and the individual. Reviewed by Margherita Margiotti.
