Resumen:

Is cleanliness next to godliness? What does such a concept really mean? Why does it recur as a universal theme across all societies? And what are the implications for the unclean? In Purity and Danger, Mary Douglas identifies the concern for purity as a key theme at the heart of every society. She explains its relevance for every reader by revealing its wide-ranging impact on our attitudes to society, values, cosmology and knowledge. This book has been hugely influential in many areas of debate - from religion to social theory. But perhaps its most important role is to offer each reader a new explanation of why people behave in the way they do. Includes a specially commissioned preface by the author which assesses the continuing significance of the work thirty-five years later.
