The attempt of this essay is, first, to rethink some discussion about the relevance of postmodern anthropology in the light of history and some critics authors, also to witness the sterile and old debates between modern and postmodern. On the other hand, I propose to take as a model one text critic from Rey Chow on Chinese cinema to show other contexts, not necessarily ethnographic, in which issues that are treated with some seriousness and gravity, as the de-constructionism, can be thought otherwise. Finally, I conclude with a brief reflection on the question of rationality and the misinterpretation of other cultures behind the previous example.
