Six - The Politics of Cognition

Summary

examines the politics of cognition – but also the politics of cognitive anthropology. It is noted that anthropologists treat psychological approaches to social life as being somehow apolitical or even politically dubious, but this position is based on a rather strange reading of actual work in cognitive anthropology. The text also engages with the politics of self-education in both Taiwan and China.
