Interview with Maurice Bloch

(via Chapati Mystery) The Reluctant Anthropologist  "But I think we should engage with the general questions that people are ask, rather than spending our time navel gazing. .....Well, I'm very old, I should be shutting up, but I can't stop myself getting interested in questions. I'm very interested in, let's say, the frontiers of consciousness.....Since Chomsky, one of the things we're sure about is that most speakers are unaware of the grammar that they use, and therefore how it works below the level of consciousness."
