How Lifeworlds Work

ReviewsHow LifeWorlds

How Lifeworlds Work is an intellectually compelling and beautifully written book that weaves together a lifetime of rich ethnography and philosophical reflection. Jackson captures the quality of life in an African society like no one else.”

- Michael Lambek, University of Toronto, Scarborough

“Jackson is one of the most important voices in the field of anthropology. In a world where hyperbolic claims are becoming the norm of academic writing, How Lifeworlds Work, with its classic elegance and clarity, is a gem to be widely shared and savored. It will contribute richly to pedagogy in a deep sense.”
- Veena Das, Johns Hopkins University
