Carolyn Johnson ANTH 147, recitation section: Thurs. 3:30 Reading Response 5 Lindquist focuses on the ways in which diagnosis and healing involve linguistic practices of giving a name and definition to experiences of suffering. Drawing on one example from the text, provide a detailed description of how this occurs and the changes that ensue for the patient. The diagnosis and subsequent healing that takes place between magi and individuals in modern Russia is a complicated process very different from that of a doctor diagnosing a patient. Before coming into see the magi, many individuals already have an idea of what affliction they are suffering from. This crucial interaction of naming the source of an individuals suffering that takes place between the magi and the client defines the individual’s suffering, giving the client a name or reason behind the shape of their life, the patterns of their sociality, and the lives and fates close to them (Lindquist 57).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
