Author:

Paper short abstract:

What might an anthropology which takes movements amidst the whirls of organisms as anthropology's mode and object of inquiry look like?

Paper long abstract:

Tracing some of the philosophical antecedents for placing movement and the whirls of organisms as possibly a more felicitous mode and object of inquiry for anthropology, I try to develop on some of the metaphysical claims to show their methodological viability and import for a different way of understanding anthropology and what its concerns might be.
