Re "noble sentiments": no unity implied. 40 anthropologists, is 40
people going off in 40 different directions.

Most of the time "anthropologists" are not, in fact, DOING
anthropology--in my opinion. We do all sorts of other
"standard"research. We DO anthropology only when we are acting to
syntesize multidimensional/multidisciplinary information/theories/whatever.
At least that is a proposition to explore.
