Reflections on Fieldwork in Morocco by Paul Rabinow
Book DescriptionIn this landmark study, now celebrating thirty years in print, Paul Rabinow takes as his focus the fieldwork that anthropologists do. How valid is the process? To what extent do the cultural data become artifacts of the interaction between anthropologist and informants? Having first published a more standard ethnographic study about Morocco, Rabinow here describes a series of encounters with his informants in that study, from a French innkeeper clinging to the vestiges of a colonial past, to the rural descendants of a seventeenth-century saint. In a new preface, Rabinow considers the thirty-year life of this remarkable book and his own distinguished career.

Books By Author Paul Rabinow
Modes of Uncertainty, Paperback (July 2015)
Taking up policies and experiences as objects of research and analysis, the essays here seek a rigorous inquiry into a sound conceptualization of uncertainty in order to better confront contemporary problems. This book offers different ways of thinking about danger, risk, and uncertainty from an analytical and anthropological perspective.
Designs on the Contemporary, Paperback (May 2014)
Deals with the challenge of how to design and put into practice strategies for inquiring into the intersections of philosophy and anthropology. The authors explore the contemporary from past works: how to conceptualize, test, and give form to breakdowns of truth and conduct, and how to open up possibilities for the remediation of such breakdowns.
Demands of the Day, Paperback (June 2013)
Deals with logical standards and forms that should guide ethical and experimental anthropology in the twenty-first century. This title draws on experiences from a set of anthropological experiments that investigated how and whether the human and biological sciences could be brought into a mutually enriching relationship.
Designing Human Practices, Paperback (June 2012)» View all books by Paul Rabinow
Provides fresh insights into the possibilities and limitations of collaboration, and diagnoses the micropolitics which effectively constrained the potential for mutual scientific flourishing. This title utilizes a real-world experience as a springboard for timely reflections on how the human and life sciences can and should transform each other.
