Primitive culture : researches into the development of mythology, philosophy, religion, language, art, and custom by Edward B Tylor ( Book )
153 editions published between 1871 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The present volumes carry on the investigation of Culture into other branches of thought and belief, art and custom. During the past six years I have taken occasion to bring tentatively before the public some of the principal points of new evidence and argument here advanced. The doctrine of survival in culture, the bearing of directly-expressive language and the invention of numerals on the problem of early civilization, the place of myth in the primitive history of the human mind, the development of the animistic philosophy of religion, and the origin of rites and ceremonies, have been discussed in various papers and lectures, before being treated at large and with a fuller array of facts in this work. In discussing problems so complex as those of the development of civilization, it is not enough to put forward theories accompanied by a few illustrative examples. The statement of the facts must form the staple of the argument, and the limit of needful detail is only reached when each group so displays its general law, that fresh cases come to range themselves in their proper niches as new instances of an already established rule. Should it seem to any readers that my attempt to reach this limit sometimes leads to the heaping up of too cumbrous detail, I would point out that the theoretical novelty as well as the practical importance of many of the issues raised, make it most unadvisable to stint them of their full evidence. In the course of ten years chiefly spent in these researches, it has been my constant task to select the most instructive ethnological facts from the vast mass on record, and by lopping away unnecessary matter to reduce the data on each problem to what is indispensable for reasonable proof. - The second volume in a series on primitive culture, contains six chapters devoted to animism, and one chapter on rites and ceremonies. Other topics examined include: the soul; death; life after death; spirits; demons; good and evil; deities; and polytheism." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)

Researches into the early history of mankind and the development of civilization by Edward B Tylor ( Book )
76 editions published between 1865 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In his introduction to this 1865 volume, the author indicates his method by writing that civilization, being a process of long and complex growth, can only be understood when studied through its entire range. His thesis is that all cultures both in the present and long ago have to be studied as parts of a single history of human thought. The result, said the New York Times in a contemporary review, is a most entertaining and instructive collection of archeological data
