Community & Society: 25 Concepts in Anthroplogy

I'm Nick Herriman, author of Entangled State, In the "25 Concepts in Anthropology" series, I present what I think are the 25 most important concepts in socio-cultural anthropology. Each concept provides a unique insight into what it is to be human. This episode concerns the concept of "community & society". Important terms and concepts include: * Society / Gesselschaft: written laws, the state, civil society, nation, capitalism. * Community / Gemeinschaft: traditions, spoken mores, kinship and locality, reciprocity. * Also: urban community, "kampung" (compound/urban quarter). Important contributors include: * Anderson, Benedict. 1992. Imagined Communities: Reflections on the Origin and Spread of Nationalism. London: Verso. * Durkheim, E. (1933). The Division of Labor in Society (G. Simpson, Trans.). New York: The Free Press. T?nnies, F. (1957). Community and Association (Gemeinschaft und Gesellschaft) (C. P. Loomis, Trans.).
