Anthropoetics: The Electronic Journal of Generative Anthropology

Although the term Generative Anthropology dates from the publication of The End of Culture in 1985, GA was born in 1978 when I had the good fortune to be René Girard's colleague for a semester at Johns Hopkins University. The conception of the originary event, as first expounded in The Origin of Language (1981), was my attempt to combine Girard's notion of the generation of the human from the intensification of the mimetic with my own notion that the declarative sentence was derived from a more primitive form I  called the ostensive (e.g., "Fire!" "Man overboard!"). I thus reformulated Girard's scene of mimetic crisis, in which the scapegoat was transformed into a peace-bringing divinity, as the scene of the genesis of language, a scene I hypothesized to be unique for our species.

Anthropology and Humanism

In this capacity, AH accepts articles from anthropologists who concern themselves with the central question of the discipline: what it is to be human.

Also, the journal welcomes articles from scholars in other disciplines, in the humanities as well as in the sciences.

World Development

World Development is a  multi-disciplinary monthly journal of development studies. It seeks to explore ways of improving standards of living, and the human condition generally, by examining potential solutions to problems such as: poverty, unemployment, malnutrition, disease, lack of shelter, environmental degradation, inadequate scientific and technological resources, trade and payments imbalances, international debt, gender and ethnic discrimination, militarism and civil conflict, and lack of popular participation in economic and political life. Contributions offer constructive ideas and analysis, and highlight the lessons to be learned from the experiences of different nations, societies, and economies. World Development recognizes 'development' as a process of change involving nations, economies, political alliances, institutions, groups, and individuals. Development processes occur in different ways and at all levels: inside the family, the firm and the farm; locally, provincially, nationally, and globally. Our goal is to learn from one another, regardless of nation, culture, income, academic discipline, profession or ideology. We hope to set a modest example of enduring global cooperation through maintaining an international dialogue and dismantling barriers to communication.
