The authoress attempts to differentiate the various ways in which the anthropology of literature and literary anthropology are understood in the humanities today. She surveys the various approaches to disciplines. She concentrates on presenting both concepts and showing the differences between them, reserving the term 'anthropology of literature' for the analysis of texts from a social anthropological perspective, and 'literary anthropology' for the texts based in philosophical anthropology.
