"And like art, anthropology need not be wedded only to describing and analysing things as they are. It, too, can be experimental, and given to speculation. . . . But as in every moment of our quotidian lives, we can experiment by intervening in things, and by following where our interventions lead. This is to ask questions of others, and of the world, and to wait upon their answers" (129-130). I think this is a perfect way to explain what anthropology does. It is so many things in one and all of those things help us to understand amazing things and view our world in a totally new way. This helped wrap up the book by saying that anthropology is not one thing, but the things that it is are able to "transform lives" (130).
