Myth and cult among primitive peoples by Adolf E Jensen( Book )

37 editions published between 1960 and 1998 in English and Spanish and held by 1,072 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Varios son los caminos que ha seguidola investigación científica, para aproximarse a una comprensión del complejo fenómeno religioso de los pueblos primitivos. Mas, con demasiada frecuencia, el punto de partida para su estudio y valoración está en las premisas establecidas por la cultura occidental, lo que necesariamente había de conducir a graves yerros en la interpretación. Ad. E. Jensen, consciente de este peligro, se enfrenta a los mitos y cultos mismos, considerándolos como expresión de la vivencia que los pueblos primitivos tuvieron de la realidad. Esta actitud permite al autro desprenderse de toda valoración establecida -como aquella, tan extendida aún, que atribuye al hombre primitivo una mentalidad de escaso desarrollo- y sumergirse en el proceso de creación subyacente a los mitos y cultos. Aquí radica el interés primordial de este libro. Se lleva al lector, a través de una serie de fabulosos relatos, a conocer directamente el mundo mítico primitivo. Estos relatos son fruto de amplia investigación de campo y revelan una atinada selección. Distingue el autor, discípulo del descollante etnólogo Leo Frobenius, un vasto conocimiento de las manifestaciones culturales de los pueblos primitivos, conocimiento debido en buena parte a su propia actividad en el campo, con lo que se encuentra en la afortunada situación de ser teórico y práctico, a la vez. Y también le es propia una cualidad decisiva para adentrarse en un mundo tan distante del nuestro: el autor posee una segura intuición para reconocer el espíritu esencialmente creador, que originó las expresiones míticas

Lozi FQ09( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Lozi consist of a number of interrelated ethnic groups located along the Zambezi River in Barotse Province of western Zambia. This file consists of 11 documents, including one translation from the German, and covers the period from 1920-1960. Turner's work provides an overall view of Lozi culture and society touchs on the major areas of Lozi ethnography as reflected in the cultural patterns of the affiliated tribes of the Central Barotse Plains. Lozi political structure is discussed in some detail in Gluckman and further supplemented by Jensen. Peters discusses native agricultural techniques, soils and general land use. Gluckman's writings deal with the pattern of land distribution of Barotse property to all homesteads, the king's protection of subjects' rights to a piece of land and the forms of tribute and gifts from commoners to royalty, the relation of bride-price, presence or lack of agnatic lineage groups, inheritance rules and general stability of marriage and the nuclear household, aspects of Barotse jurisprudence, and economic behavior. Reynolds presents a compilation of data relevant to Barotse sorcery based on records of investigations and judicial proceedings conducted by British officials in 1956 during a wave of sorcery and witchcraft incidents. Prins is a comprehensive and reliable account of Lozi society as it existed between the years 1876-1896
