Valuing the Self book.

Valuing the Self book. In both the teaching and practice of anthropology, according to Lee, "what we can learn from other cultures" and apply to ourselves and our own world is precisely what gives meaning and value to the pursuit of anthropology as an academic discipline. Valuing the Self essentially captures the essence of anthropology's humanistic potential while simultaneously providing a rich and accurate sense of what life and culture are about in small-scale traditional societies.

The book sensitively and clearly distinguishes thought and behavior in primitive cultures .

The book sensitively and clearly distinguishes thought and behavior in primitive cultures, as well as raises questions and offers answers as to how the individual might be nurtured and taught to enjoy life with greater personal fulfillment, to engage others and to be engaged by them, and to live life to its fullest potential. Lee's work holds that learning from other cultures and valuing their significance and worth are more central to what the discipline of anthropology is and should be about.

Asking someone what they are reading is like saying, ‘Who are you and who are you becoming?’ By Will Schwalbe. I believe that everything you need to know you can find in a book. People have always received life-guiding wisdom from certain types of non-fiction, often from self-help books. But I have found that all sorts of books can carry this kind of wisdom. A random sentence in a thriller will give me unexpected insight. If I hadn’t read Killing Floor, the masterful 1997 novel that introduced the world to Jack Reacher, a former military cop turned vagrant, I never would have learned this.
