This felicitation volume for Josephus D.M. Platenkamp brings
some central concerns of anthropology into focus: social
morphology, exchange, cosmology, history and practical
applications. Ranging across several disciplines and
continents, but with a preference for Southeast Asia, the
contributions look at a common approach that unites these
diverse themes. In this view, the most constitutive
relationships of society are based on exchange. Exchange and
ritual articulate central values of a society, thus
appearing as parts in relationship to a whole. These
relationships encompass both human and non-human beings, the
social and the cosmological domain. Thus, the study of these
subject issues merges into a single project.
