Search for: [Abstract = "The aim of this article is to rethink and simultaneously to enrich previous reflections about contexts and consequences of the literary, textual and interpretive turn, which took place in the history of socio\-cultural anthropology re\-oriented to the literary science and philological imagination. The text reconsid ers the ‘writing culture’ movement seen from the perspective of more than three decades, focusing on three aspects. Firstly, this is the so\-called new sensitivity which continuation we can observe presently in the so\-called new humanities, in the post\-independence, postcolonial studies, as well as engaged anthropology and action research. Secondly, presenting the consequences of the emergence of literary imagination in the anthropology at the level of epistemology and theory, the text is calls for defining the discipline as a humanity in action. Thirdly, the text presents the influence of the ‘writing culture’ movement on remodelling research practices embedded in the empirical methods of qualitative research. Undertaking her reflections in the context of the crisis of socio\-cultural anthropology launched at the turn of the 1960s and 70s, the author shows its political and social contexts. The significant aspect is that so\-called experimental moment in anthropology has not been limited only to focusing by anthropologists on ‘literary undertaking’, but it has been a part of a permanent legacy of the discipline which has contributed to its critical self\-reflection."]
