5.0 out of 5 stars An awakener from Anthropology 2 Feb 2002
By Michel Heller - Published on Amazon.com
A classic of 20th Century intellectual creativity, that has been recognized as such, but that has not yet received the full attention it deserves. It has momentarelly be dispensed of as "old fashioned", when social sciences based on neuro-sciences has clearly not yet integrated the vast webb of implications the formulations of this volume generate.
An absolute must, even - or because - many formulations are arguable. It is not a book that proposes conclusions, but awakens our intelligence.

4.0 out of 5 stars a classic, boring book 23 Jan 2009
By J. Shepard - Published on Amazon.com
Don't read this book for pleasure. Only read it if you have to. It's useful if you have a good reason to read it.
