Culture and the Senses

Kathryn Linn Geurts

University of California Press

This chapter centers on the aspects of the world that are thematized in Anlo contexts, beginning with a section on the perceptions of their homeland, their migration story, and the ηlƆ of their term. It also addresses the issues of morality and personhood, and investigates the themes and motifs that are consistently presented as dimensions of Anlo core culture. The chapter shows how the actions of an individual have powerful consequences for those around him, to the extent that unethical behaviors can lead to a spirit taking one's child.

Keywords:   aspects of world, homeland, migration story, morality, personhood, Anlo core culture, unethical behaviors
