Having strong scholarly foundations in ethnography and European ethnology, it appears to be a growing discipline, which, at times, borders on the ridiculous as well as the serious. There is considerable disagreement among practitioners as to what exactly anthropology is and whether the name of anthropology itself is appropriate. Its development and current popularity is restricted in both time and space. It is certain that anthropology in Hungary – and my guess is that this may be the case in most European countries – will not be able to develop in future without serious reference to its 'Western' (i.e. Western European or North American) counterparts (see Kürti 2000). In what follows, I shall describe briefly the background and unfolding of Hungarian ethnography and its current anthropological offshoot. In particular, I shall highlight those aspects of Hungarian developments that relate to the current state of anthropological scholarship. I shall conclude by focusing on those problematical elements that should be taken into consideration when the future of Hungarian anthropology is being discussed.
