Description - "Culture" and Culture by Manuela Carneiro Da Cunha

Brazilian anthropologist Manuela Carneiro da Cunha examines here the complex meaning and anthropological implications of the word culture for indigenous peoples. Caneiro da Cunha explores the contradictions inherent in the interface between Western and traditional understandings of knowledge and intellectual property rights. Distinguishing culture from culture, the latter being a reflexive awareness of one s culture, Carneiro da Cunha then poses questions such as: What are the cognitive and pragmatic consequences when culture and culture coexist? She shows how the word culture, as used in the anthropological sense, is employed by indigenous people to distinguish the different interpretations and avoid contradictions. " Culture and Culture" offers a concise and innovative anthropological study of a crucial issue faced by indigenous peoples the world over. "
