Questions

Can you think of a gesture, phrase, that you share whose meaning is very context dependent?

What is "thick description" according to Geertz? What is "thin" description?

What is Geertz's conception of meaning? How does this compare to a functionalist conception of cultural meaning?

Geertz refers to interpretive ethnography as a science. What does he mean by "science"? Is this how you understand the term?
