Abstract

The Descola Variations The Ontological Geography of Beyond Nature and Culture peter skafish Much about Philippe Descola is exactly what you end up deciding you might have expected from someone holding a chair at the Collège de France. So measured is his tone when discussing what is clearly an extremely wide learning that it becomes obvious that this is someone with the tact and discretion of a politician, and thus the capacity to survive the complex trajectory leading to a professorship at that almost inaccessibly elite institution. Nothing in his appearance disconfirms it: his considerable height, still full white hair and beard, and long, masculine face give him a patrician air that you, the disoriented foreigner, imagine to be like that of many of his Republican forebears interred up the hill in the Panthéon. Objective criteria agree--France's Centre national de la recherche scientifique conferred upon him its highest honor, a medallion d'or usually reserved for genius in the natural sciences, he presided until recently over the anthropological laboratory founded by Claude Lévi-Strauss, and a major, celebrated exhibition at Musée de quai Branley was a result of his work--while a first meeting at his office might as well be
