In four brief chapters writes Clifford Geertz in his preface I have attempted both to lay out a general framework for the comparative analysis of religion and to apply it to a study of the development of a supposedly single creed Islam in two quite contrasting civilizations the Indonesian and the Moroccan br br Mr Geertz begins his argument by outlining the problem conceptually and providing an overview of the two countries He then traces the evolution of their classical religious styles which with disparate settings and unique histories produced strikingly different spiritual climates So in Morocco the Islamic conception of life came to mean activism moralism and intense individuality while in Indonesia the same concept emphasized aestheticism inwardness and the radical dissolution of personality In order to assess the significance of these interesting developments Mr Geertz sets forth a series of theoretical observations concerning the social role of religion br br, Suppose Clifford Geertz suggests having entangled yourself every now and again over four decades or so in the goings on in two provincial towns one a Southeast Asian bend in the road one a North African outpost and passage point you wished to say something about how those goings on had changed A narrative presents itself a tour of indices and trends perhaps a memoir None however will suffice because in forty years more has changed than those two towns the anthropologist for instance anthropology itself even the intellectual and moral world in which the discipline exists And so in looking back on four decades of anthropology in the field Geertz has created a work that is characteristically unclassifiable a personal history that is also a retrospective reflection on developments in the human sciences amid political social and cultural changes in the world An elegant summation of one of the most remarkable careers in anthropology it is at the same time an eloquent statement of the purposes and possibilities of anthropology s interpretive powers br br To view his two towns in time Pare in Indonesia and Sefrou in Morocco Geertz adopts various perspectives on anthropological research and analysis during the post colonial period the Cold War and the emergence of the new states of Asia and Africa Throughout he clarifies his own position on a broad series of issues at once empirical methodological theoretical and personal The result is a truly original book one that displays a particular way of practicing the human sciences and thus a particular and particularly efficacious view of what these sciences are have been and should become, No description available, In i The Interpretation of Cultures i the most original anthropologist of his generation moved far beyond the traditional confines of his discipline to develop an important new concept of culture This groundbreaking book winner of the Sorokin Award of the American Sociological Association helped define for an entire generation of anthropologists what their field is ultimately about
