SCHWARCZ, Lilia K. Moritz. Questões de fronteira: sobre uma antropologia da história. Novos estud. - CEBRAP [online]. 2005, n.72, pp. 119-135. ISSN 1980-5403. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-33002005000200007.
The article investigates the way anthropology deals with historical processes. Focusing on a wide range of theoretical schools, it tries to analyze the role played by history in each tradition, as well as understand how it helped build anthropology as a discipline. Taking as guideline the work of authors such as Lévi-Strauss, Marshall Sahlins and Thomas Mann, the author discusses the notion of time not only in distant cultures, but also in occidental society.
