The western construction of religion : myths, knowledge, and ideology by Daniel Dubuisson( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, anthropologist and historian of religion Daniel Dubuisson contests Mircea Eliade's theory of the existence of a universal Homo Religiosus and argues that religion as a discrete concepts is a Western construct, an invention of nineteenth-century scholars who created it as a field of scientific study. Before that time, there was little attempt to step outside religious experience and objectify it. In fact, the difference between "secular" and "religious" as understood in the West is meaningless in many non-Western cultures."--BOOK JACKET
Mythologies du XXe siècle : Dumézil, Lévi-Strauss, Eliade by Daniel Dubuisson( Book )

21 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in French and Romanian and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les oeuvres de Dumézil, Lévi-Strauss et Eliade dominent le champ contemporain des études mythologiques. Elles ont joué un rôle essentiel dans les sciences humaines de notre temps en leur fournissant plusieurs modèles et concepts originaux. D. Dubuisson présente ces théories à travers les apports de chacune d'entre elles.--[Memento]
Twentieth century mythologies : Dumézil, Lévi-Strauss, Eliade by Daniel Dubuisson( Book )

17 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in France in 1993, and since then translated into Italian (1995) and Romanian (2003), Twentieth Century Mythologies provides an indispensable resource not only for scholars of religion and myth, but also for those interested in both the history and the impact of ideas in the pasty century."--Jacket
Wisdoms of humanity : Buddhism, paganism, and Christianity by Daniel Dubuisson( Book )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Resting on a new and long awaited comparative study (of buddhism, yoga, christian spirituality and ancient philosophies), this book restores wisdoms into their fascinating and vigorous personality. It particularly demonstrates that all of them were inspired by similar principles and conceived very comparable mental techniques

À perte de vue : les nouveaux paradigmes du visuel( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cet ouvrage est le fruit d'une expérience originale et novatrice qui a été menée dans le cadre du Réseau Thématique Pluridisciplinaire " Visual Studies - Les nouveaux paradigmes du visuel " initié par l'Institut des Sciences Humaines et Sociales du CNRS entre 2010 et 2012. Plusieurs spécialistes (psycho-cogniticiens, historiens de l'art, informaticiens, sociologues, artistes, spécialistes de la communication et de la muséologie) ont été invités à présenter non seulement leur conception, mais aussi les bases théoriques de leur approche des phénomènes visuels. Ont été retenus, dans une acception aussi large que possible de ceux-ci, les mécanismes physiologiques de la vision humaine, la production et les fonctions sociales des artefacts visuels (vêtements, photographies, images, oeuvres d'art...), la communication visuelle (journalisme, musées), mais aussi les ressources et outils numériques les plus récents utilisés par la création artistique contemporaine."

Twentieth Century Mythologies by Daniel Dubuisson( Book )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because its topic is not so much the study of myth as much as it is theories of myth, this book aims at a rather precise goal: to make a contribution to writing a history of ideas in the twentieth century. Twentieth Century Mythologies does this by offering a comparative epistemology to examine the diverse scholarly definitions of, and hypotheses concerning, myth and myths--assembling both theorists and theories into a coherent picture in which the specific place, contributions, as well as shortcomings, of each becomes apparent. The book examines in detail the influential work of three great sc

Le chamanisme contemporain des Nahua de San Miguel Tzinacapan, Sierra Norte de Puebla, Mexique by Michel Duquesnoy( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

San Miguel Tzinacapan, communauté de quelques 4000 habitants, se distingue par sa très forte majorité indigène, par son attachement à ses coutumes et par son dynamisme peu commun. Appartenant à l'ethnie nahua, la plus représentative numériquement parmi la soixantaine de groupes autochtones qui peuplent le Mexique, les Maseualmej (c'est à dire les "paysans") de ce village -ainsi se désignent eux-mêmes les Nahua de la Sierra Norte orientale-, se réfèrent à une vision du monde et de l'homme peu commune. Les pratiques et la médiation chamaniques de ses curanderos (tapajtiani) plongent dans ce trésor extraordinaire qu'ils contribuent à renouveler constamment, sans pour autant trahir la quintessence de l'idéologie nahua. Peuple de la terre, les Maseualmej tournent sans cesse leur regard vers leur inframonde - le Talokan - source ambivalente de dons et d'infortune. Aux yeux de ces hommes et de ces femmes, un nombre indéterminable d'extra-humains traversent l'univers auquel ils impriment inévitablement le poids de leur présence. Le chamane nahua, par le rêve, parvient à déjouer leurs manigances, à moins qu'il ne les utilise à des fins répressives. Toutefois, la médiation chamanique, à San Miguel, se caractérise par la discrétion de ses spécialistes, laquelle ne cache pourtant jamais l'importance de l'institution chamanique en tant qu'entreprise sociale, thérapeutique et morale
