This module examines the place of the individual, community and morality, in anthropological theory, past and present, and how this is ethnographically applied. In exploring the experiences of contemporary life individuality is found to be the key to understanding the meanings in whose terms that life is led. Individual consciousness will be seen to be significantly self-created, and individual agency and identity as importantly independent of particular socio-cultural milieux.
