Note on Tim Ingold:


This exposition's review process brought up Tim Ingold as a pertinent reference, pointing to his work on knowledge creation through making, within the methodological framework of cultural anthropology. I have taken notice of Ingold's pertinence in regard to the discussion on bricolage. However, my knowledge of his work formed only at a late stage of this exposition's creation, and the body of work proved to be too large and too important to be incorporated into the exposition. Ingold's work is of fundamental value and I would not like to add it as a light reference – rather study it in detail and incorporate it in future discussions.
