Malinowski and the New Humanism (2013)


In this article Bronislaw Malinowski's ideas on humanism are analysed with reference to unpublished texts and drafts, published texts such as A Diary in the Strict Sense of the Term, his personal letters to his wife Elsie Masson and articles in which his ideals were reflected. An attempt will also be made to set Malinowski's proposal for the New Humanism in its scientific and cultural context along with the work of other great thinkers and humanists of his day. Finally, it is suggested that Malinowski's ideas in this field, despite the passage of time, are still relevant to social anthropology and, at the very least, still inspire new thoughts.
