Ow do these anthropologists of the1960s further extend the methodological inquiry beyond functionalisms weaknesses as an analytical framework?
The scientific anthropology of Malinowski (A scientific Theory of Culture) and those that came prior to him were challenged in various ways. Evans Pritchard brought forward the importance of a historiographical focus, Baileys processual ideas of agency in the 1950s expanded the analysis and Gluck mans focus on how cohesion was achieved among South Africans, with both money and guns (divide and cohere) all challenged the functionalist perspective. Very bluntly, survival strategies of intent set the stage for the work of Raymond Firth and John Barth. How do these anthropologists of the 1960s further extend the methodological inquiry beyond functionalisms weaknesses as an analytical framework?.
