|Resource title||Future Primitive|
|Summary text/ abstract||Division of labor, which has had so much to do with bringing us to the present global crisis, works daily to prevent our understanding the origins of this horrendous present. Mary Lecron Foster surely errs on the side of understatement in allowing that anthropology is today "in danger of serious and damaging fragmentation." Shanks and Tilley voice a rare, related challenge: "The point of archaeology is not merely to interpret the past but to change the manner in which the past is interpreted in the service of social reconstruction in the present." Of course, the social sciences themselves work against the breadth and depth of vision necessary to such a reconstruction. In terms of human origins and development, the array of splintered fields and sub-fields – anthropology, archaeology, paleontology, ethnology, paleobotany, ethnoanthropology, etc., etc. – mirrors the narrowing, crippling effect that civilization has embodied from its very beginning.|
