Item description for Wildness and Sensation: Anthropology of Sinister and Sensuous Realms by Rob Van Ginkel & Alex Strating...
The social sciences, including anthropology, predominantly deal with order, not disorder or chaos. Social scientists tend to overlook the wild, uncivilized, transgressive, and abhorrent elements of human existence, while they ought to devote systematic attention to this dimension, since it is intrinsic to the human condition, the flipside of civilization. The modes and manners of imagination, classification, sensitization and representation are the book's common denominator and are addressed in an ethnographic, conceptual, and theoretical sense. Around this pivotal issue inspired by the seminal work of Jojada Verrips the editors have brought together an intriguing and thought-provoking set of contributions.
