It is suggested, by way of personal reflection, that some of the ethical, methodological and theoretical challenges of ‘doing anthropology’ in post-apartheid South Africa can productively be met by a pre-theoretical commitment to ‘principled symmetry’. This commitment is also helpful in addressing the questions ‘Is “relevance” still relevant?' and ‘How to engage public culture and the postcolonial state’?</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Kirsch, Thomas G.</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/30"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/33815"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/34"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2016-05-04T14:57:45Z</dcterms:available> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
