Fluid ontologies : myth, ritual, and philosophy in the highlands of Papua New Guinea

Author: Laurence Goldman; Chris Ballard
Publisher: Westport, Conn. : Bergin & Garvey, 1998.
Edition/Format:   Print book : Conference publication : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
In developing regions of the world, understanding how indigenous populations manifest their worldviews is imperative before implementing new social policies. Building on three decades of studies of Melanesia by ethnologists, the authors argue that these societies' worldviews assume that the process of flow between events, rather than the nature of the events, is critical to a model of human sociality.
