Keywords: anthropology; social science; ethnology

Summary/Abstract: The authors of the article assume that anthropology is constantly engaged. They wish to see research work and ethnographic transcript somewhere between the truth and fictional creation. As an alternative to anthropological studies and the trivialization of texts, they point out to a program of the discipline’s open humbugisation and its traces in the media displays. Eventually, it would be an attempt to achieve a new reflection on the subject of research and narration.
