Albert Piette

Albert Piette is a Belgian anthropologist from Namur, Belgium. He is a professor at Paris West University Nanterre La Défense, his researches concern the questions of observation and selection of data. His fields are in the religious world. In most of his books, he describes and analyses details and ordinary forms in situations of everyday life, he builds an existential anthropology focusing on minor modes of human presences, in order to understand collective life and the differences between humans and other animals. In his recent books, from the notions of phenomenography and ontology, Albert Piette elaborates anthropology as an empirical and theoretical science, different from sociology and ethnology, it would have its own methods of observation and ontography, its own objects to observe and analyse: humans’ existences and non-human’s existences around people. Piette’s anthropological world is filled with Homo sapiens and Neanderthals and monkeys, gods and institutions and presences, activity and passivity and evolution.

According to Piette, an existential anthropology. This consists in studying humans as existing, perceiving their existence as their own, knowing that they will lose it too. In this perspective, existential anthropology observes the microcontinutiy of the individual, living the moments and situations according to various modalities of presence-absence and passivity-activity. Piette does not want to assess existential anthropology as secondary. In the aim of detailed observations of existences, Albert Piette thinks that ethnography, working on groups and activities, is less suitable that phenomenography, focusing on singular individuals; as the word implies, phenomenography studies on the one hand what appears, movements, gestures and on the other hand, as an empirical counterpoint to phenomenology, it attempts to describe states of mind and feelings in the moments’ continuity.
