This booklet argues that the breaking and re-making of frames of study underlie the background of theorizing in anthropology. Pamela J. Stewart and Andrew J. Strathern observe that this mode of study dangers fabricating over-essentialized dichotomies among viewpoints. The authors suggest  a conscious, nuanced, people-centered method of all theorizing-one that avoids overall method techniques (-isms)  and recommend that conception may still relate cogently to ethnography. aware anthropology, as this booklet envisages it, isn't a particular idea yet a philosophical aspiration for the self-discipline as a whole.
