This paper is the written version of a talk Boyer gave a year or two ago at a session on integrating the sciences and the humanities at the University of British Columbia. The title of the lecture was "Three Styles of Inquiry in the Study of Culture. Explaining the Current Dismal State of Cultural Anthropology." It is highly entertaining (especially if you work in the science or erudition modes). The video is posted here.
