The Changing Problem

How anthropology deals with its “problem” is now a topic of heated debate internal to anthropology. And two other things have changed. First: the Other has changed. Non-Western societies have undergone rapid social change.

I refuse to be the Vanishing noble savage. I demand my rights and the right to be treated just like you.

Second: anthropology has come home. It no longer exclusively studies non-Western cultures. Now anthropologists also study marginal cultures in Western societies as well as institutional and organizational cultures, such as business corporations, scientists and the police.
