The recent hermeneutic (postmodernist) turn in anthropology has been linked to the expiation of colonial guilt, which includes traditional, functionalist anthropology as an accessory to the crime: anyone critical of the relativistic claims of interpretive anthropology (as Ernest Gellner is) is likely to be turned into (as he often is) an ex-post imperialist.
