Summary/Abstract: This paper outlines three ways of understanding the specificity of cultural anthropology. The first one characterises the discipline by means of the method of understanding the world, i.e. ethnographic fieldwork. The second refers to a manner of thinking about the world, i.e. intellectual poaching and transgressing interdisciplinary boundaries. The third one shows anthropology as a way of life, foregrounding personal experience.
