This short comment on Tamás Hofer’s paper discusses the opportunity of the association on ‘latent’ ethnicity with national schools of European ethnology rather than with certain academic centres of influence in the history of European ethnology. It also points out the danger of overestimation of the cultural dimension of ethnologist’s personality compared to his personality as a scientist. Finally, the use of an ‘ethnic’ terminology in an European context is questioned.
