Roger Sandall’s essays on anthropology and culture are clearly written and forceful. I suspect that his opinions represent a Minority report in current anthropology. I found his site when AL Daily linked his essay on the Mayans, Collapsing the Maya. His essay on The Noble Savage, Rousseau or Lucretius is carefully reasoned. His essay Tribal Yearnings, which is about Karl Popper’s theory of an open society and the legitimacy of tribalism, is fascinating.

Did you read his bio? Interesting guy… and funny.
