This review is from: The Elementary Forms of Religious Life (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
This book is worth reading just for the introduction and the book itself provides a fascinating insight on why societies need religion, how it has developed and the function it performs in society. Any religious person needs to read it as background to their own beliefs while atheists should consider the way in which it illuminates the value of religion in the world.
