Radin, Paul: The World of Primitive Man


1 varastossa


”In his foreword Stanley Diamond calls ’The World of Primitive Man’ the most radical and humane work in anthropology to have appeared in our time. Because of its importance to an understanding of the modern world as well as the primitive, it is being published in this new Dutton Paperbacks edition. Paul Radin (1883-1939) was on of the great interpreters of the inner life of so-called primitive peoples. For him they were not objects to be described but subjects to be recognized in their fully human and personal existence. Long before ’structuralism’ became a catchphrase Radin was demonstrating the universal features of primitive culture. Radin draws upon a wealth of illustrative material from the subjects themselves, particularly North American Indian tribes, to make an intelligible portrait of the structure and nature of primitive society. The government, law, and status of man within that society, and the place of man in its myths, literature, and philosophy, are Radin’s central concerns.”
