I am curious to know Grant, on what you base the statement
"but I suspect you miss a lot by not including many of the mental tools
people use ..." .
The reason I ask you this question is because I know that you do not know
anything about me or my work other than that I am an anthropologist,
recently returned from the field in Egypt,
who studies many areas - but only traditional culture was mentioned. I know
this is all you know about me because that is all I mentioned about myself
and my work in the previous post. Your comment is a reference to my
'approach, methodology, theoretical basis, and content.... of which you
assumed a considerable amount....that is inaccurate.
This reminds me of a thread posted last year when some members of this list
wondered why not many women post to the list...
