Simmel and Frazer

The Adventure and The Adventurer

Adventure, by its various definitions and by what it embraces, comes in many expressions, some might be near as an aspect of quotidian life, others might be far and distant such as dreams and venturing into totally new contexts. Adventure and anthropology are coupled like Siamese twins. The reasons are numerous and they take us in many directions, thus, I will explore what I consider some of the important ones.

Anthropology was born out of adventure, and its roots are quite recent in comparison to how the West understood the foundations of adventure and exploration, which were prior to anthropology's nineteenth century foundations. Since anthropology started as an academic discipline, its empirical findings came from adventure and adventurers in the form of colonial officials, explorers, missionaries, administrators, and the intrepid traveler. One can quickly note that, in the broader sense, mutatis mutandis, the necessities of forging anthropology as a science could only have been done by denigrating its roots in adventure. Examination, however, of Georg Simmel's and Sir James Frazer's writings on adventure reveal the basic juxtaposition of adventure and anthropology.
