On War and Potentiality

(p.1) Introduction
War on People

Jarrett Zigon

University of California Press

In addition to introducing the aim, argument, and approach of the book, the introduction also includes sections that develop the notion of war as governance, critical hermeneutics, and an anthropology of potentiality. All of these are linked with the argument that in the contemporary condition of things, anthropology would do well to address widely diffused phenomena that can potentially manifest anywhere and affect anyone, reconceive or create concepts that better address this condition, and more explicitly take up the “otherwise” as a focus of research.

Keywords:   war, biopolitics, political activity, potentiality, critical hermeneutics, concepts
