Wu Wei Wu
Wu Wei Wu
The author discusses the art of wu wei wu—“doing without doing”—and its significance to his anthropological research in Kragur. He first explains why he wanted to go back to Kragur and says he kept a mental list not only of people and places he wanted to see and things he wanted to do, but also of things about which he was especially curious. He then considers what the people of Kragur call a cargo cult, in which they would petition the spirits of their dead and in some cases, the Virgin Mary, to send them money. He also expresses his interest in learning about other dimensions of Kragur life and describes how the Kragur people feel about his two books, Hard Times on Kairiru Island and Village on the Edge.
