Building on his seminal contributions to symbolic analysis, Roy Wagner repositions anthropology at the heart of the creation of meaningOCoin terms of what anthropology perceives, how it goes about representing its subjects, and how it understands and legitimizes itself. Of particular concern is that meaning is comprehended and created through a complex and continually unfolding process predicated on what is not thereOCothe unspoken, the unheard, the unknownOCoas much as on what is there.

Such powerful absences, described by Wagner as OC anti-twins, OCO are crucial for the invention of cultures and any discipline that proposes to study them.As revealed through conversations between Wagner and Coyote, Wagners anti-twin, a coyote anthropology should be as much concerned with absence as with presence if it is to depict accurately the dynamic and creative worlds of others.

Sly and enticing, probing and startling, Coyote Anthropology beckons anthropologists to draw closer to the center of all things, known and unknown
