Discussion on anthropologist Webb Keane’s new book “Ethical Life: Its Natural and Social Histories”

We will be focusing on chapters 2 and 5. Chapter two discusses the ethical dimensions of establishing a shared sense of reality through interaction. Chapter five provides a case study of how such processes resulted in lasting moral systems through examining the history of feminist consciousness-raising.
