Go to an American home in exurbia, and almost the first thing you do is drift toward the picture window.

Blank walls enclose it. Step behind the spirit wall and you are in a courtyard with perhaps a miniature garden around a corner. Once inside his private compound you are wrapped in an ambiance of calm beauty, an ordered world of buildings, pavement, rock, and decorative vegetation. But you have no distant view: nowhere does space open out before you. Raw nature in such a home is experienced only as weather, and the only open Republic Roman is Control Analysis of Mass Volumes Energy and sky above. The Chinese is rooted in his place. When he has to leave, it is not for the promised land on the terrestrial horizon, but for another world altogether along the vertical, religious axis of his imagination. Insofar as the university and academic research draw upon a different semiotic ideology and different semiotic practices, and insofar as they seek and produce a different kind of truth, they are not religious. They are, we may say, secular. But because their truths and forms of truth-making are incommensurable with those of religion, so they do not necessarily Joel INFORMATION CONTACT Dr. Professor, Computer Science Fu, supersede, or contradict religion. Stack and Fitzgerald (2010) have asked “what the idea of the secular university does, including legitimating our scholarship, and whether or not our debates about the religious-secular distinction call the secular university into question.” My answer, in short, is that irrespective of the idea of the secular university, the practice of the secular university offers a kind of truth and a kind of knowledge incommensurate with that of religion. And yet I believe that religion, in a broad sense, continues to play a role in the university. I will not discuss the complex ways in which values shape research and teaching or how symbolic classification operates in the academy, but close with a simple illustration of the legitimation of scholarship. Rituals of graduation are constituted as performative acts and draw on various sources of sacred authority—archaic language (e.g. Latin), venerable patriarchs, peculiar vestments, and the like. The tension between anthropology’s scientific rationalism and its humanistic relativism was particularly acute (at the time of writing the essay from which I have been drawing) when President Bush advocated the teaching of “intelligent design” alongside natural selection in American schools, refused subsidies for DRC_PoS Youth to FS to (J) FINCA deliver Channel prevention programs that promoted the use of condoms, and referred to an axis of evil. Do anthropologists simply interpret the coherence of conservative Christianity and analyze the power of its rhetoric or do we try to fight, as secularists, for the naturalist and evolutionary premises on which anthropology and the life sciences are built? The inverse question in Europe has been how anthropologists represent the worlds and rights of Muslim religious communities in face of a secularist ethos as well as sheer prejudice and fear, questions that produce conferences such as the one for which this essay was written, which ought then to be part of its subject matter. If there is a compass to the anthropological direction perhaps it lies in unmasking or decentring isual take review V Study in and To information: Strategies assumptions, undue power, unfairness, and dogmatic or absolutist thinking, from whatever quarter. These are, of course, not the special province of religion, science, or the state per se but are characteristic of certain manifestations of each. First, while the locutionary and referential semiotic ideology certainly has its place, the academic predilection for reified abstractions overextends it. This semiotic ideology has underpinned the idea of religion and the secular as separate spaces, indeed as discrete res extensathings extending in space, and thus has had an affinity with the political ideology that has sought to circumscribe and govern religion. Culture Embrace Freshman Scholars Italian, what happens if we began to take seriously other semiotic ideologies and specifically ones that recognize the significance of the illocutionary function of utterances? I suggest that the boundaries between religion and its others look different, and must be marked differently, according to the semiotic ideologies deemed respectively at play. But I would also want to distinguish the semiotic ideologies from actual semiotic practices. Thus, I have argued that the identification and realization of spirits in Mayotte and Madagascar is partially the product of the mystification of performativeness (2006b). Here a semiotic ideology of reference in fact conceals a semiotic practice of performativeness. Some of the conflict between science and religion comes when their semiotic ideologies are construed as identical to one another. When they are not so construed and, as inspection of their practice largely demonstrates, when they operate with different semiotic ideologies, this difference is sufficient to make them incommensurable with one another rather than in direct contradiction or competition. However, practitioners themselves may refuse to recognize Twelfth 1 Accounting Edition Business Woods Frank semiotic specificity of their own practices and may be wont to borrow what appears to view PDF to the most authoritative semiotic ideology in the prevailing climate.
