From the reconstruction and criticism of functional analysis that has been undertaken, I would suggest that certain conclusions emerge. I shall conclude by listing the more important ones. Thesis I: functional analysis is a particular method of explaining and describing social phenomena. Understood in this sense, functional analysis is the most important contribution that functionalism has made to science. Thesis II: functional analysis is a form of systemic analysis, requiring the acceptance of a systemic model of society, be it a model of a simple system, or a teleological system, or a functional system, or a teleological system composed of teleological elements.

Thesis III: four types of functional analysis can be distinguished, depending on the systemic model that is accepted: simple functional analysis, developed functional analysis, double-level functional analysis and functional-motivational analysis.

In an age of Big Data, scanner data, and online analytics, it is such ethnographic research that is providing the most compelling insights into consumption. As the chapters in this handbook demonstrate, some of the very best research on business — including consumption, technology, design, organizational and work practice studies — is being done by business anthropologists. " - Russell Belk, Schulich School of Business, York University " The Handbook of Anthropology in Business is as deep as it is broad, approachable by readers new to the field, and informative and insightful for experts. . - ken anderson, principal engineer, Intel - Catriona Macaulay, Programme Director MSc Design Ethnography, University of Dundee "This indispensable volume highlights the promise of anthropologists' contributions in business.

Left Coast Press : Advancing Ethnography in Corporate Environments. "This is an incredibly useful book for grasping the power and nuances of what ethnographic techniques, practices and mindsets can provide the corporate world. This is no ordinary book. By cleverly pairing different points of view on ethnographic methods the authors provide a textured understanding of why ethnography is such an important tool for grappling with today’s rapidly evolving world.

I highly recommend this book. " - John Seely Brown, Former Chief Scientist of Xerox Corp and Former Director of Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) "One of the biggest challenges that hangs over the social sciences today is how to make sense of the corporate landscape. While companies are not the type of entities that anthropologists have traditionally analyzed, they are playing an increasingly important economic, political and cultural role in the modern world. . - Gillian Tett, U.S. "Ethnography has come to be accepted in industry as an important component of corporate research programs.
