He concludes that history (as sensibility, as worldview, and as mode of inquiry) takes its most regular nourishment from an ideology of social mobility. Anthropology engages history not as one but instead as many things: (1) sociocultural change or diachrony; (2) a domain of events and objects that make manifest systems of signification, purpose, and value; (3) a domain of variable modalities of the experience and consciousness of being in time; and (4) a domain of practices, methods, and theories devoted to the recording and the analysis of temporal phenomena. Perspectives in American Indian Culture Change. It has gone hand in hand as well with the ascendance of the postcolonial demand that anthropology offer a reckoning, not simply of its relation to the colonial past but also of the status of the knowledge that it claims to produce (Hymes, 1972; Asad, 1973; Clifford and Marcus, 1986). Marshall Sahlins offers an alternative, which also takes history as its analytical object, but further as its analytical mode. Spicer, E., 1975.

Drawing from Foucault but also from John Dewey and Gilles Deleuze, he offers an ‘anthropology of the contemporary’ that would track ‘ratio(s) of modernity, moving through the recent past and near future in a (nonlinear) space’ and serving as ‘gauges’ in light of which one or another aspect of the modern can be registered as ‘becoming historical.’ Once again, a history-for but also as much an anthropology-for, it borrows some portion of its critical framework from Foucault’s late formulation of a ‘critical ontology of ourselves,’ an exercise that in its successes would extract ‘from the contingency that has made us what we are, the possibility of no longer being, doing, or thinking as we are, do, or think’ (1997). Penelope Papailias (2005) has delved into the writings of modern Greek historians to discover senses of the same relationship that are very far from the boiling point.

In The Origin of Species (1859), Charles Darwin affirmed that all forms of life share a common ancestry. It does not, however, offer a design for historical inquiry in close accord with Dilthey’s or other standard historical precedents.
