CSORDAS EMBODIMENT PDF

Thomas J. Students of culture have been increasingly concerned with the ways in which cultural values are "inscribed" on the body. These essays go beyond this passive construal of the body to a position in which embodiment is understood as the existential condition of cultural life. From this standpoint embodiment is reducible neither to representations of the body, to the body as an objectification of power, to the body as a physical entity or biological organism, nor to the body as an inalienable centre of individual consciousness. This more sensate and dynamic view is applied by the contributors to a variety of topics, including the expression of emotion, the experience of pain, ritual healing, dietary customs, and political violence.

Embodiment as a Paradigm for Anthropology

Utrecht, Holanda. The American anthropologist Thomas Csordas is one of the great names of contemporary anthropology. His vast areas of interest and research topics include psychological and medical anthropology; comparative religion; anthropological theory; cultural phenomenology and embodiment; globalization and social change; and language and culture. His fieldwork has included studies of Charismatic Catholics, of the Navajo People, adolescent psychiatric patients in the American Southwest, and contemporary Catholic exorcists in Italy and the United States. His work, based on his research into these communities, has engaged with a variety of themes, including therapeutic processes and cures; ritual language and creativity; sensorial imagination; self-transformation; bodily techniques, illnesses and their causes; and the experiences of psychiatric patients. Professor Csordas was co-editor of Ethos: Journal of the Society for Psychological Anthropology and president of the Society for the Anthropology of Religion Perhaps you could begin by telling us a bit about your trajectory, which is briefly summarized here.

CONTENTIOUS TRADITIONS THE DEBATE ON SATI IN COLONIAL INDIA PDF

The purpose of this chapter is not to argue that the human body is an important object of anthropological study, but that a paradigm of embodiment can be elaborated for the study of culture and self. By paradigm I mean simply a consistent methodological perspective that encourages reanalysis of existing data and suggests new questions for empirical research. Although I shall argue that a paradigm of embodiment transcends different methodologies, I will not attempt to synthesize the broad multi-disciplinary literature on the body 1 The approach I will develop from the perspective of psychological anthropology leans strongly in the direction of phenomenology. This approach to embodiment begins from the methodological postulate that the body is not an object to be studied in relation to culture, but is to be considered as the subject of culture, or in other words as the existential ground of culture.
