Ruth Benedict - Patterns of Culture

"anthropology is worthless."

"Anthropology has become a clearinghouse for anarchists and communists without job skills."

"The work of anthropologists would mean less than nothing to you if you were suddenly diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. This science does no one any practical good except the practitioners who glom an easy living off academia. What practical good comes from 'studying' completely obvious human traits such as race, ethnicity and gender?"
