„You can try to conceive the phenomenon of contemporary tourism in various ways, although I do not intend to enclose it in one definition.” (p. 7) – explains Anna Wieczorkiewicz in introduction to her new book. After the reading of “Apetyt turysty. O doświadczeniu świata w podróży”, which refers to a wide range of the latest anthropological theories, and treats all contemporary phenomena of tourism, one can resume that every explicit and univocal estimation of tourism appears to be a pure naivety. What is most important in this research is that the author does not evaluate or estimate univocally any mode o life or experiencing. As she states in the introduction, she does not aim to “explain”, but to “understand” the contemporary phenomena of tourism by applying different, suitable anthropological methods. This is why this book can be perceived as an itinerary on the latest theoretical grasps on this phenomenon, and the variety of anthropological and philosophical methods applied to it.
