Abstrakt


This paper is intended as an analysis of the post-socialist war over social
and cultural anthropology. It presents the four most important groups whichparticipated in this war: the group of the “Volkskunde” people; the group of the “Völkerkunde” people; the group of native anthropologists; and the group of the western-educated socio-cultural anthropologists. It isolates the most importantlogic of this war, i.e., the logic of ‘money and power’, as well as other important, ultimately decisive factors in the outcome of the post-socialist changes and development
in the field of social and cultural anthropology, such as the role of social
capital and the role of (political) chameleonism. Additionally, some of basic results of the post-socialist war over social and cultural anthropology – redefining ethnology and social and cultural anthropology, the invention of anthropo-ethnology and de-professionalization – are all presented and analysed.
