A first approach to tourism and the tourist: beware of words and caricatures!

Abstract : Based on an interview with a French anthropologist particularly well-skilled on
tourism, this article offers a useful first glance to the beginner researcher on the
phenomenon of tourism. We will essentially focus on the dangers of caricatures and
simplistic views. Thus, we will try and give a more stimulating portrait of the tourist
research than it is nowadays in France.
