MORAL DISTRUST: CONFLICT AND MUTUALISM IN A ROMANIAN VILLAGE (2014-2015)
Field of study: Anthropology
This paper discusses the distrust between fellow villagers in a Romanian community as a form of moral attitude. I argue that distrust is neither a pathological inclination, nor a stable and indiscriminate feature of cultural representations, but an expression of moral relationships and folk epistemology in the village society.
Keywords: distrust, conflict, Romanian village
