Journal of Extreme Anthropology

An interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal devoted to the study of extreme subjects, practices and theories, critically exploring the notion of the extreme within contemporary cultural, political and economic environments, conceiving of anthropology in the broad sense as the study of human, and thus open to contributions across social sciences, humanities and philosophy. What constitutes the 'extreme' in extreme times, when consensus on what is moral and immoral, good and evil, right and wrong, appears to have eroded? Can we think extremes in order to escape, resist and subvert them?

'I remembered Machiavelli, whose rule of Method, rarely stated but always practiced, was that one must think in extremes, which means within a position from which one states borderline theses, or, to make the thought possible, one occupies the place of the impossible'

Louis Althusser
