The School of Social Science which Clifford Geertz, assisted by Albert Hirschman, managed for more than 25 years starting from the 1970s, hosted more than 500 researchers at the Institute for Advanced Study. During this period, together with Robert Darnton, Clifford also taught an undergraduate course on Anthropology and History at Princeton University.

A description of these activities can be drawn from papers and recollections. Moreover, we hope that prominent collaborators and contributors at the School—such as Robert Darnton, Wolf Lepenies, Bill Sewell and Quentin Skinner—will help us discuss and re-propose themes and solutions that were worked out at the time.
