Example text

As stressed by Martin Heidegger, Kant never came to a clear understanding of the peculiarity of that question and its relation to metaphysics, “for anthropology is an empirical-ontic science and as such cannot afford to found ontology and philosophy in general” (Heidegger 1997: 48). Other interpreters of Kant’s anthropology have been less concerned with the problem of understanding the relation between metaphysics and Kant’s cosmopolitan approach. Foucault, for example, reads Kant’s anthropology as a kind of a paradigm for reflecting on and accounting 36 Cheryl Mattingly and Uffe Juul Jensen for human practice.

One anthropological response to this charge is that this approach to theory (philosophical or otherwise) is central to the entire disciplinary enterprise, even central to how anthropology can contribute theoretically to questions that philosophers are also concerned with. Most essentially, there is the matter of the sheer thickness, the nuance, of ethnographic examples. The methods of anthropology produce slices of the world that overflow, elide, slip away from the systematic purity of theory. This penchant for messiness is no accident; in fact its production in fieldnotes and monographs is a matter of some disciplinary Dialogue 1: What Can We Hope For?

So there are a few examples. But once again the question is: Why so few? If Aristotle provided a promising starting point for collaboration, why are there not more examples of this kind of interdisciplinary collaboration? Is there something about the culture of philosophy and the way it is taught that impedes this? Why Philosophers Ignored Aristotle’s Division of Labor Jean-Paul Sartre offers a suggestive answer to our questions, drawing upon his own experience of learning (Sartre 1963). Like any other philosophy student, Sartre had studied all the major Western philosophers: Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, and Kant.
