Tim Ingold is Chair of Social Anthropology at the University of Aberdeen. He is the author of over fifteen books and a fellow of the British Academy.
'Ingold, one of the most original and radical thinkers alive, presents his unique vision in a crystal-clear and passionate way. The book deserves a wide readership inside and outside the discipline.'Thomas Hylland Eriksen, University of Oslo 'Anthropology: Why It Matters is both an introduction to and a profound meditation on the classic questions of anthropology. It is a model of what I would call "companionable thinking."'Veena Das, Johns Hopkins University
