The text is a free peregrination trying to answer some questions on ethnology of today and author's 'place' in it. He makes an attempt at expressing his own position on ethnology. Assuming that ethnology is a science with limits that are difficult to be determined, he believes that it should be also open to other languages of the discourse. Writing about his favourite authors (R. Barthes, J. Cliffiord, C. Geertz, K. Hastrup) the author focuses on the problem of the presence of fiction in the language of ethnologists. He also describes a certain evolution of fiction in ethnology. Addressing the issue of field studies, he acknowledges their importance, although he does not claim that they are necessary. An extensive part of the article deals with visual anthropology (which is the main area of his interest), its extent and some translational suggestions.
