The Social Life of Things by Arjun AppaduraiFairly sprawling discussion of economic anthropology, beginning with Simmel’s thoughts on the formation of desire in modern subjects, and its relation to economic exchange. Importantly, where Simmel was concerned to understand the relationship between a fully monetized, capitalist economy and modern subjectivity, Appadurai intends to universalize the commodity as the basic unit of all economic analysis, attempting to show how barter and gifting are in fact special cases of this more universal category. Appadurai never really demonstrates the analytical value of this convoluted move, and seems more intent on demonstrating the inadequacy of different theories of value generated in radically different times and places by placing them alongside one another to highlight their incongruities. The more interesting portions of the essay draw on Bahannon’s examination of ‘paths and divergences’ of commodities, and the various anthropological work that has examined ‘mythologies’ of commodification from the point of view of producers, middle-men and consumers (e.g. Taussig’s work on commodity fetishism). Overall, as my committee chair put it, this essay is a study in ‘how not to do economic anthropology’.
Formicarius - Early Will I Seek Thee (ft. Sakis of Rotting Christ)
Psalms 63:1-8 KJV
O God, you are my God; early will I seek you: my soul thirsts for you, my flesh longs for you in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;. Then David departed, and came into the forest of Hareth. And Saul sought him every day, but God delivered him not into his hand…. Psalm Why art thou cast down, O my soul? Psalm When he slew them, then they sought him: and they returned and inquired early after God.
O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
