Summary
The author repositions anthropology at the heart of the creation of meaning--in terms of what anthropology perceives, how it goes about representing its subjects, and how it understands and legitimizes itself. Of particular concern is that meaning is comprehended and created through a complex process predicated on what is not there--the unspoken, the unheard, the unknown--as much as on what is there. Such powerful absences, described by the author as "anti-twins," are crucial for the invention of cultures and any discipline that proposes to study them. Coyote anthropology should be as much concerned with absence as with presence if it is to depict accurately the dynamic and creative worlds of others. Furthermore, the author suggests that anthropologists not only be aware of what informs and conditions their discipline but also understand the range of necessary exclusions that permit anthropology to do what it does
