Teaching and Unteaching with Legal Anthropology.
Greenhouse, Carol J.
American Behavioral Scientist, v25 n1 p21-35 Sep-Oct 1981
This essay summarizes the differences between the anthropological view and the folk (cultural) view of the law. The anthropologist focuses on individual relationships while the lawyer emphasizes institutional arrangements. The author argues that these distinct underlying assumptions lead to divergent conceptions of the role of law and the definition of justice. (AM)
