Abstract Anthropologists are concerned about the absence of their discipline in Namibia and in the wider region. In this contribution I try to clarify what exactly is missing if anthropology is not institutionalised locally. I underline the importance of ethnography and comparison which I fear is underestimated by some recent work. In my response to views about my own work aired in Anthropos (2001), I point out the useful potentials of comparative ethnography with special reference to hunter-gatherer studies, I argue against attempts at redefining all anthropological work as contemporary history and extreme reflexivity and at renouncing and denouncing all comparative anthropology as anachronistic and politically irresponsible. I identify three new debates dealing with cultural difference, case-based evidence, and political relevance, which I hope will take over the space previously occupied by "the Kalahari debate."
