Sometimes your thoughts need to be legitimized by research and objective arguments of others. Perhaps discovering anthropologist slash Sangoma slash professor Wim van Binsbergen could be considered a delightful moment.
I spent two hours listening to an interview on his vision on anthropology, becoming a Sangoma and his perception on why the current state of Anthropology is problematic. His basic premises is; “Anthropology is epistemologically naïve and has a knowledge-political bias towards the North-Atlantic. Leading to unfaithful attitudes to both one’s fellow humans in the field work situation and to oneself”.
