Description - Questions of Consciousness by Anthony P. Cohen
A pioneering attempt to formulate an anthropological approach to consciousness, Questions of Consciousness explores the importance of the conscious self, and of the 'conscious collectively', in the construction and interpretation of social relations and process. It thereby explicitly raises questions, the answers to which have previously been neglected in anthropology: how aware are people of their behaviour?

Anthony P Cohen - Professor of Social Anthropology, University of Edinburgh James W Fernandez Professor of Anthropology, University of Chicago Kirsten Hastrup Professor of Social
