Tim Ingold s Being Alive was a thought provoking yet frustrating read Ingold is an anthropologist and the book is an attack on the way anthropologists approach their subject and in a larger sense on how westerners think and interact with the world It s extremely low level challenging the reader on how they think about objects and motion and walking Most of a chapter is spent discussing the action of sawing a piece of wood and what that meansFundamentally he argues that we think about the world around us as being comprised of objects We mentally model the world as being a collection of things that have properties and have relationships It s a world that can be represented as a set of connected points He then argues in many ways and from many points of view that we should be thinking of ourselves as lines or bundles of lines rather than as points and that the lines interact with each other in many ways He refers to a number of cultures that think about the world like this and explains how our western way of thinking about the world blinds us to a real understanding of how these cultures work Animism the beliefs of many hunter gatherer societies around the world is in this picture not a world view where everything is imbued with a spirit but is rather a world view where animals people rocks and everything in the world are parts of stories and there is no rigid separation between living things and non living things That distinction isn t needed because they don t see the world as being comprised of objects and so they don t need to imbue certain objects with the property of living in order to explain their ability to act in the worldI don t think I ve read anything that is uite such a fundamental attack on the way the western world thinks and it left me intellectually reeling in a number of places I hadn t even considered the possibility of not thinking of the world in this wayOn the other hand there is a lot about the book that frustrated me There were an awful lot of straw men used to support his arguments stating that people generally think of things in a certain way which was clearly to me a blatant simplification of how actual people think Plenty of unsupported arguments And the most fundamental problem was that he never really explained what his alternative world view was He explained some of the properties of this world view but never what the lines really actually represented what they meant So while I often agreed with his position that there are other ways of thinking about the world I couldn t bring myself to embrace his position because it wasn t ever stated And lastly as a mathematician by training I found his statements about things not being points but rather being lines seemed rather trivial there are plenty of things that can be represented as lines or points depending on how you want to view them it s a simple transformation not a fundamentally different thingI think Being Alive will give different things to different people I can understand how it would appeal to humanities folks much than it did to me In many ways the most important thing it contains is the uestions it asks many of which I ve never heard asked before rather than the answers it attempts to give Oracle of anthropological concernBeing Alive ranges Hot Damn Stepbrother Romance #1 over such themes as the vitality como un sueño of materials what it means to make things the perception and formation Morbo of the ground the mingling Peach Boy (Bank Street Level 3*) of earth and sky in the weather world the experiences Wolfs Pack Wolfs Trilogy #3 of light sound and feeling the role Kaandhalur vasanthakumaaran kadhai of storytelling in the integration Uber #18 of knowledge and the potential Millennials of drawing.
