Interview with Tim Ingold

Tim Ingold, Professor of Social Anthropology at University of Aberdeen, talks to Ben Spatz about the difference between anthropology and ethnography, the importance of collaboration, skilled practice and playing the cello, why he finds the idea of the body problematic, and why he thinks of people as human becomings rather than beings.
