Les anthropologues et la religion by Andr� Mary

By Andr� Mary

• Description : l. a. sortie annoncée de l. a. faith dans les sociétés modernes se traduit par une dissémination du religieux ou au contraire par des réveils qui déplacent le centre de gravité des grandes religions. C’est le second de revisiter ce que les anthropologues, qui ont traditionnellement partie liée avec les religions des autres (primitives, traditionnelles ou populaires), ont à nous dire sur le socle des formes élémentaires du religieux et les mécanismes symboliques du rituel. Le religieux des anthropologues (fétichisme, chamanisme, faith des ancêtres…) n’est jamais séparé de l’héritage, assumé ou refoulé, des catégories de leur faith « local ». Le fil conducteur de cet ouvrage est donc los angeles query qu’Evans-Pritchard fut l’un des premiers à poser : l. a. relation personnelle des anthropologues aux choses religieuses dans los angeles development même de leurs objets. Tous sont finalement confrontés, à l’image du kind réservé au mana par Claude Lévi-Strauss, à l. a. query du « reste » : une religiosité renvoyée à los angeles périphérie du mécanisme rituel ou du système symbolique. Cet ouvrage repose sur un parcours de lecture body of workers marquant les filiations de pensée et los angeles continuité des choix d’objets entre les auteurs : on connaît l. a. dette de Cl. Lévi-Strauss vis-à-vis de Marcel Mauss, mais on forget about souvent le discussion oblique entre Evans-Pritchard et Lévi-Strauss, ou entre Bastide et Lévi-Strauss. Sont également étudiés ici des auteurs aussi importants que Cl. Geertz, M. Augé, J. Favret-Saada.
