Primitive classification by Émile Durkheim ( Book )
24 editions published between 1963 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this influential work, first published in English in 1963, Durkheim and Mauss claim that the individual mind is capable of classification and they seek the origin of the '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, hierarc

Right & left; essays on dual symbolic classification by Rodney Needham ( Book )
20 editions published between 1973 and 1991 in English and held by 710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Right and Left is the first book to explore symbolic dualism systematically in a variety of cultures. Featuring a new translation of Robert Hertz's seminal work, "The Pre-eminence of the Right Hand," this rewarding collection presents seventeen essays written between 1909 and 1971 by notable scholars on both literary and ethnographic aspects of the subject. Many appear here in English for the first time, and several have been materially revised for this volume. Together, these essays reveal the amazing range of dual symbolic classifications--such as right and left, masculine and feminine, yin and yang--and support Hertz's contention that polarity is a fundamental aspect of human expression.-back cover

7 editions published between 1978 and 2005 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Covers myth, witchcraft, iconography, fiction, dreams, and seeks to find common ground in anthropology, psychology, and history. It calls upon the findings of world ethnography as well as on ideas and experiences familiar to any reflective individual. Rodney Needham demonstrates a method of cultural analysis made possible by the discrimination of primary human characteristics, and he investigates (through a study of the image of the witch) the imaginative tendency to synthesize primary factors into archetypes"--Publisher description

This volume scrutinizes the questions of conceptualization, method and history in the fields of kinship, social anthropology and structuralism.
