Относительность и неопределенность в человеческой культуре
"Man is an animal suspended in webs of significance he himself has spun, I take culture to be those webs, and the analysis of it to be therefore not experimental science in search for law but an interpretitive one in search of meaning." Geertz (1973:5)

"Cultural analysis is intrinsically incomplete. And, worse than that, the more deeply it goes the less complete it is. It is a strange science whose most telling assertions are its most tremulously based, in which to get somewhere with the matter at hand is to intensify the suspicion, both your own adn that of others, that you are not quite getting it right." Geertz (1973:28-29)
