123, note 1). The process of dissociation from Marx’s method being the foundational aspect of AM, it is doubtful whether AM should be categorized as Marxism at all. Such a question has been raised by many AMists and Marxists, and it is revealing that Roemer’s answer to it is: ‘I am not sure that it should; but the label does convey at least that certain fundamental insights are viewed as coming from Marx’ (Roemer, 1986, p. 4). What warrants the ‘Marxism’ in AM is, in the opinion of AMists, the perpetuation of a research programme seen as descending from Marx, and, ultimately, a commitment to socialism.
Anthropology Keith Hart An ‘anthropology’ is any systematic study of humanity as a whole. The modern academic discipline has its origins in the democratic revolutions and rationalist philosophy of the eighteenth century. The question then was how the arbitrary inequality of the Old Regime might be replaced by an equal society founded on what all people have in common, their human nature. It was thus a revolutionary critique of the premise of inequality and a source of constructive proposals for a more equal future.
The question then was how the arbitrary inequality of the Old Regime might be replaced by an equal society founded on what all people have in common, their human nature. It was thus a revolutionary critique of the premise of inequality and a source of constructive proposals for a more equal future. Such a future was thought to be analogous to the kinship organization that preceded societies based on the state and class division and that could still be observed among contemporary ‘savages’. This framework for thinking about social development was retained and elaborated in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, but it is no longer the leading anthropological paradigm, having been replaced by an ethnographic relativism that is more compatible with a world society fragmented into nation-states.
