Clifford Geertz on Eclecticism

The Interpretation of Cultures: Selected Essays.

Clifford Geertz

Basic Books, Inc., Publishers

1973

Eclecticism is self-defeating, not because there is only one one direction in which it is useful to move; but because there are so many it is necessary to choose.

New to the world of blogging, I have always been fascinated by the scientific endeavor and I read about or engage with those processes as much as possible. I am a compulsive reader and writer (predominately non-fiction and scholarly work) With a background in anthropology and as an arm-chair/backyard scientist, I hope to improve my writing skills and learn about any areas of weakness or misunderstanding in my analytic skills. I want to improve and am particularly interested in science blogging and creating science content as a freelancer. I work for a wonderful company procuring high asset/risk insurance coverage for niche businesses and professionals, not fitting typical underwriting models as a day job. I am excited to share my journey through scientific discussion, essays, how to's, technical papers, creative non-fiction, with some free verse prose thrown in for my own fun. Thank you for spending time here. Please reach out if you are so inclined. I'd be excited to hear from you.

    1. Thank you for your remarks. Awesome call on your link to Ecclesiastes. Never ocurred to me! prob much more Fun than Geertz. He is a high order thinker within the muddy waters of anthropology and social “science.” Cheers K!
