References from the audience:
Drid Williams
David Pocock + Personal anthropology
“More then anything else, however, Oxford taught me to acknowledge the great achievements of human beings by honoring the foundation of the achievements in people themselves. Pocock’s idea of a personal anthropology (like Polanyi’s Personal Knowledge which inspired it) constistently emphasizes the importance of the person in the process of knowing.”
