Antropologia da propriedade, Teoria jurídica


Esse artigo toma o renovado interesse dos antropólogos na teoria da propriedade como uma oportunidade para considerar a teoria e prática do direito como um tema etnográfico. Meu foco está em um constructo particular – o instrumento, ou as relações de meios para fins que animam tanto a teoria jurídica quanto a antropológica sobre proprie- dade.Uma análise da produção desse constructo leva-nos à conclusão deque menos do que uma crítica dos fins do conhecimento jurídico, a antropologia da propriedade deveria se dedicar a articular seus próprios meios.
