"After many decades of one-sided emphasis on cultural differences in anthropology and related disciplines, we are badly in need of an examination like this that foregrounds what human beings have in common." * Wilfried van Damme, Leiden University "The book clearly is a heroic achievement. It offers a valuable contribution to filling a large gap." * EthnoScriptsVom Verlag:
Since the politicization of anthropology in the 1970s, most anthropologists have been reluctant to approach the topic of universals - that is, phenomena that occur regularly in all known human societies. In this volume, Christoph Antweiler reasserts the importance of these cross-cultural commonalities for anthropological research and for life and co-existence beyond the academy. The question presented here is how anthropology can help us approach humanity in its entirety, understanding the world less as a globe, with an emphasis on differences, but as a planet, from a vantage point open to commonalities.
