PROLOGUE: AUTOBIOGRAPHY, RE-MEMBERING, THEOLOGY

1. See Claude Lévi-Strauss, “Race and History,” in his Structural Anthropology, vol. 2 (New York: Basic Books, 1976), pp. 328–30. Lévi-Strauss demonstrates both traits in his Tristes Tropiques (New York: Atheneum, 1955), pp. 388–93.

2. See Dell Hymes, ed., Reinventing Anthropology (New York: Pantheon, 1969).

3. Johann Baptist Metz, Faith in History and Society: Toward a Practical Fundamental Theology(New York: Seabury, 1980), p. 219.

4. The Mudflower Collective, Carter Heyward, ed., God's Fierce Whimsy (New York: Pilgrim Press, 1985), pp. 87–142.

5. Robert Bellah, Habits of the Heart: Individualism and Commitment in American Life(Berkeley: University of California, 1985), pp. 142–63.

6. Calvin O. Schrag, Communicative Praxis and the Space of Subjectivity (Bloomington, Ind.: University of Indiana Press, 1986). Schrag's voice is an important one that needs a wider hearing.

8. On memory's capacities to effect this kind of awareness, see Metz, Faith in History, p. 194, and his discussions of memory in the writings of Herbert Marcuse, Walter Benjamin, and Theodor Adorno.

9. Ibid., pp. 220–21.

10. Edward S. Casey, Remembering: A Phenomenological Study (Bloomington and Indianapolis, Ind.: Indiana University Press, 1987), pp. 11–12.

11. Ibid. Casey actually discusses many more traits. My own are sometimes additions and sometimes combinations of the traits he identifies.

12. Ibid., p. 24.

13. Ibid., p. 27.

14. Lévi-Strauss, Structural Anthropology, pp. 328–32.

15. E. E. Evans-Pritchard, “Religion Among the Anthropologists,” Blackfriars 41 (1960):110.

16. See anthropologist Kenelm Burridge, Encountering Aborigines: Anthropology and the Australian Aboriginal, A Case Study (New York: Pergamon, 1973), p. 17, for commentary on how in fact the very rise of modern, cultural anthropology is intertwined with missionary enterprises.

17. For the controversial study of the Wycliffe translators, see David Stoll, Fishers of Men or Founders of Empire?: The Wycliffe Bible Translators in Latin America (London: Zed Press, 1982). For a critique of Stoll's work and an anthropologist's
