Transcending the dualisms between tradition and science, culture and nature, belief and knowledge, Langwick tells a new story about the materiality of healing and postcolonial politics. This important work bridges postcolonial theory, science, public health, and anthropology. Recensie s Bodies, Politics, and African Healing is a bold and imaginative account that deserves to be read not only as an ethnography of medical pluralities in postcolonial Tanzania but also as an exemplary investigation into the field of ontological politics that unsettles deep-seated assumptions about truth and power.
It will change the way many anthropologists think and write about medical ontologies in Africa and elsewhere. It makes clear the inequalities that shape the space under which healers must operate, and their efforts to work this to their advantage. Bodies, Politics, and African Healing successfully challenges us to reconsider the very way in which we think about African healing.
