Description - Transcendent Individual by Nigel Rapport

How might anthropology seem if it were written in celebration of individuality - of the individual's conscious and creative engagement with socio-cultural milieux - and if it were committed to a liberal agenda which sought to cherish and defend that individuality? Transcendent Individual argues for just such a commitment: a reappraisal of the place of the individual in anthropological theorizing and ethnographic writing, and a social - scientific appreciation of the individual as methodological, moral, pragmatic and aesthetic subject. Here is an anthropological account of individual creativity, of the narrativity of individual expression, of the originality of individual becoming, and of the morality of the individual body. Written in an accessible style, and juxtaposing literary and philosophical against anthropological voices Transcendent Individual presents its readers with a social-scientific issue of importance and topical concern.
