But, for whatever reason, most cultural anthropologists are not engaging (or are
not being heard) on the pressing policy issues of our time. One very hopeful sign

America's Top Pundits Are Wrong: Anthropologists Talk Back edited by Besteman
and Gusterson (2005). By drawing on anthropological data and their own sharp ...

And as I discussed in the first chapter, the stark juxtaposition of rationalism and
relativism no longer maps the important epistemological positions in
anthropology, philosophy, or the sociology of science, though they continue to be
evoked in arguments. In the remainder of this chapter, I will outline four
