This second edition of Reclaiming a Scientific Anthropology arrives at just the right time, as new advances in science increasingly affect anthropologists of all stripes. Lawrence Kuznar begins by reviewing the basic issues of scientific epistemology in anthropology as they have taken shape over the life of the discipline. He then describes postmodern and other critiques of both science and scientific anthropology, and he concludes with stringent analyses of these debates. This new edition brings this important text firmly into the 21st century; it not only updates the scholarly debates but it describes new research techniques—such as computer modeling systems—that could not have been imagined just a decade ago. In a field that has become increasingly divided over basic methods of reasearch and interpretation, Kuznar makes a powerful argument that anthropology should return to its roots in empirical science.

Naked Science is about contested domains and includes different science cultures: physics, molecular biology, primatology, immunology, ecology, medical environmental, mathematical and navigational domains. While the volume rests on the assumption that science is not autonomous, the book is distinguished by its global perspective. Examining knowledge systems within a planetary frame forces thinking about boundaries that silence or affect knowledge-building. Consideration of ethnoscience and technoscience research within a common framework is overdue for raising questions about deeply held beliefs and assumptions we all carry about scientific knowledge. We need a perspective on how to regard different science traditions because public controversies should not be about a glorified science or a despicable science.

Excerpt from The Scope and Content of the Science of Anthropology: Historical Review, Library Classification and Select, Annotated Bibliography; With a List of the Chief Publications of Leading Anthropological Societies and Museums The present work is an outgrowth of an earlier effort to alleviate the worries and perplexities haunting the classifier of books as well as the amateur scientist, taking up this most unsettled and vaguely limited field of study. As far back as 1894, while assistant in the Field Columbian Museum Library it fell to my lot to take part in the classification of its very handsome collection of anthropological literature, and since that time the subject has never been entirely out of my mind. Three years later, when appointed Librarian, I undertook a thorough revision of the classification, and in 1898 read a paper on the subject in the Chicago Library Club, a brief extract being printed in the Library Journal of the same year as well as in Public Libraries. Two years later joining the staff of the National Library, as a catalogue reviser, it became my duty to assign subject headings to its collection of anthropological literature in connection with the new catalogue, and also to keep track of current books in that line, with a view to recommend new purchases. I soon found out that my classification had been prepared too hastily and more especially that its claims for the new science were too sweeping, viewed not only from the standpoint of the classifier of a universal library but even from that of the cautious, broad-minded specialist. I had evidently followed authorities that of late have been justly criticized for their aggressive zeal in encroaching upon the legitimate field of neighboring sciences.
