The hidden ordinary: reflections in anthropology
A stunning account of how things that seem just part of everyday life, are in fact extra-ordinary once we notice them.
As anthropologists do when they stop to listen.
As poets do when they see the world in a grain of sand.
When we see how things that are not normally defined as special, perhaps because studied or practised by ‘amateurs’ rather than ‘specialists’, are often truly special.
How as we go through our daily round our lives are surrounded by splendour.
After you read this then world will never look the same.
