Stuart McLean claims that anthropology stands to
learn most from art and literature. He insists that experiments with language
and form are a performative means of exploring alternative possibilities of
collective existence, new ways of being human and other than human, and that
such experiments must therefore be indispensable to anthropology’s engagement
with the contemporary world.
