Course Description: In this course, students first explore anthropological theories of value in contemporary anthropology. After a brief exploration of Kluckhohn’s “values project," the formalist-substantivist arguments, and debates about the nature of the social role of money, up to the recent neoliberal resurgence in anthropological theory, students examine the contrasting legacies of Karl Marx and Marcel Mauss. Students look at these as two very different approaches to many of the same problems, and they use case studies to investigate how useful this theory can be when applied to familiar problems.
