Example text

JOINT STATEMENT Cheryl Mattingly and Uffe Juul Jensen T he two authors of this chapter, one a philosopher (Uffe Juul Jensen) and the other an anthropologist (Cheryl Mattingly), have been in conversations over the past two decades. We have decided to write this together as part of our long project of discussion. Some of our observations about the challenges and possibilities of cross-disciplinary dialogue are informed by our own history of conversation (Jensen and Mattingly 2009). Some parts of this chapter are also being further developed in forthcoming books.

She articulates what she assumes is the implicit philosophy of everyday actors by using relevant philosophers’ concepts and, in so doing, redescribes the practice she is studying. Sartre has a warning: Intellectuals who apply a philosophical system “to conquer new territory not yet fully explored, those who provide practical applications for the theory and employ it as a tool to destroy or to construct—they should not be called philosophers” (Sartre 1963: 8). What can we learn from Sartre here?

But the structure of such paradigm changes can serve as a model for philosophizing in practice in a more general way. This brings us back to a basic feature of philosophy mentioned earlier: philosophy as mediated in texts embodying positions, perspectives, and sometimes theoretical systems developed in negotiation, opposition, or struggle with other (earlier or simultaneous) positions or systems.
