Oxford: Oxford University Press. Mattingly, C. Berkeley: University of California Press. Oakland, California: University of California Press. Moscrop, A. While Mattingly is not explicit about the role of emotions in ethics, it is unavoidable in the accounts she gives, and this is one part of the story that might have benefited from further theoretical reflection.
Making accounts of others and ourselves is an ethical process, which she takes seriously. While she directly relates each of her ethnographic accounts to her theoretical points, she does not tie up all the loose ends, showing rather than telling the reader how caring for a very sick child can be a moral experiment and how ethics is not about answers, but about questions, possibilities, and struggles.
In the prologue, Mattingly portrays her approach as contentious and adversarial. I am glad that this threat of a fight was not entirely fulfilled. Certainly, she makes a strong case for her theoretical approach and is unflinching in considering the counterarguments to it, but ultimately this book is a lesson in balanced, respectful, and scholarly theory that is ethnographically informed theory and that leads by example rather than getting bogged down in epistemological turf wars. Racism and poverty exist in their actions and effects and Moral Laboratories shows this in heartbreaking detail.
New Releases. Description The anthropology of ethics has become an important and fast-growing field in recent years. This book argues that it represents not just a new subfield within anthropology but a conceptual renewal of the discipline as a whole, enabling it to take account of a major dimension of human conduct which social theory has so far failed adequately to address.
An ideal introduction for students and researchers in anthropology and related human sciences.
