Investigating Culture offers an innovative approach to understanding culture as a constructed phenomenon open to investigation of its implicit premises and explicit forms.

  • Provides a refreshing alternative to traditional textbooks by challenging students to think in new ways and to apply these ideas to their own lives

  • Focuses on the ways that humans orient themselves, e.g., in space and time, according to language, food, the body, and the symbols provided by public myth and ritual

  • Each chapter includes: an introduction framing the central issues, examples from a range of cultures, a selected reading or two, additional suggested readings, and exercises

User Review  - kayla** - Goodreads

For a textbook, really good! Found myself really drawn to the areas that interested me because the writing flowed and it didn't become too political. It felt honest and informative. Read full review

User Review  - Heather - Goodreads

This is a textbook for a MIT Open Courseware class that I was doing. I've put it on hold for now, but the first 200 pages were fabulous! I loved every minute of this book. It was fascinating! I'll be getting back to the rest later this summer. Read full review
