Radical Anthropology Group

We would like to draw readers’ attention to this fascinating group of academics/activists who give some really fresh perspectives on the problems of today and how they might be tackled. We were particularly impressed by a piece:Managing Abundance, Not Chasing Scarcity, The Real Challenge For The 21st Century”. It appears to us that the whole issue of languages and the false choice between international communication or safeguarding “minoritylanguges” can be seen in the same way. By sharing resources and respecting each other’s languages we can also move to develop effective management of international communication.

It is also worth reading Chris Knight’s (founder of the group) analysis of the work of linguist and political activist, Noam Chomsky.
