Anthropoetics Journal of Generative Anthropology

About Anthropoetics

Anthropoetics, founded in 1995 as UCLA’s first Open Access journal, is devoted to Generative Anthropology, which studies the works of human culture on the hypothesis that language, religion, art, and all things specifically human can be traced to a unique scene of origin. The Chronicles of Love & Resentment have been available since 1995 and number over 700.
