In both psychology and anthropology the initial period of elementarism (as in cuhure trait analysis) gave way to a period of holism (as in configurationalism). At present, anticipating the character of many of the papers in Part II, there is a tendency towards a new kind of elementarism, in that highly specific variables, or factors, are isolated as relevant to a specific problem . It may ~ said that holism is only possible with the personal approach , for reality (as in a single cultural system) is tOO complex to treat excepting by a selective, synthetic translation through the genius of an individual mind.
In any event, we have not taken this seriously enough in our research training . The highly subtle and com· plex communication between anthropologist and informant calls for rraining sessions in psychiatric interviewing. Sensitivity can be taught. " We can also learn to observe with the "third eye" after having been exposed, for example , to filmed sequences of interviewing with interpretative sessions on interaction synchrony and dissynchrony, following ethnomethodological and symbolic interactionist persuasions.
