Primitive classification by Émile Durkheim( Book )

"Durkheim and Mauss claim that the individual mind is incapable of classification, and they seek the origin of 'classificatory function' in society. On the basis of an intensive examination of forms and principles of symbolic classification reported from the Australian aborigines, the Zuñi and traditional China, they try to establish a formal correspondence between social and symbolic classification. From this they argue that the mode of classification is determined by the form of society, and that the notions of space, time, hierarchy, number, class and other such cognitive categories are products of society."--Back cover
