On Current Anthropological Issues: Barth and Functionalism (in Arabic)

Auther : Idrees Salim Al-Hasan

The paper attempts to introduce to the Arabic speaking readers one of the most important contemporary anthropologists, viz F.Barth, through the discussion of some of his works, but he can best the paper argues be understood by juxtaposing his conceptual scheme with that of functionalism; as the former is built on the wreckage of the latter. The main concepts of Barth’s position and that of functionaism are exposed to indicate that Barth’s Position, which emphasizes human action at the level of the actor, can be considered to be analytically more advanced. At the end of the paper some discussion and criticism of Barth is offered to show how his stand, nevertheless, has also some specific shortcomings which have to be taken into consideration before it could be applied.
