|Abstract:||Anthropologists without Culture? The concept of culture obviously has a great importance for anthropology. Nevertheless, it is an uncomfortable concept; above all, because its polysemy which reduces the analytical operational value, and also because of the ideological burden which it often implies. Moreover, to all this can also be added the fact that the term culture not only belongs already to the most colloquial language, but it is an active element within the current political arena as well. People use culture and society as synonyms; culture and cultural identity are mixed up; with the weight of cultures, sometimes the individual is forgotten; and the ethnocratic flavor which often is attached to the concept is also undeniable. For all these reasons, in recent years some anthropologists would prefer the abandonment of the concept by the discipline. Throughout this article, I analyze some of these attitudes and offer some reflections on the value and semantic boundaries marks of the culture concept.|
