Redeeming Anthropology

A Theological Critique of a Modern Science

Khaled Furani

  • Explores anthropology's past, present, and possible future relation to theology
  • Employs Thoth, Eucharist, and Hubal as paradigms for signaling and examining particular powers governing various relations anthropology has or could have with theology
  • Juxtaposes sources from three national anthropological and various pre-monotheistic and monotheistic traditions
  • Draws on biographies, memoirs, and interviews of leading anthropologists to advance a critique of the discipline from a theological perspective
