Editorial Review

Product Description
Sir James G. Frazer's The Golden Bough, first published in 1890, was the first work in English to understand the religion of classical antiquity in the context of primitive religion. Its dramatic impact on the history of ideas lasted well into the twentieth century, in its association of religious myths with the more primitive forms of ritual and magic generated by the 'savage mind', identified as a common misunderstanding of the scientific laws governing the natural world. This highly acclaimed biography is the first to make a comprehensive study of Frazer's life, the influences on his work, and its wide-ranging implications for modern anthropology, classics, cultural history and folklore. This edition makes Ackerman's fascinating account of Frazer's life available in paperback for the first time.'... the definitive biography ...' New Statesman and Society '... an intellectual history of the age, as elegant as it is comprehensive'. The Times 'Ackerman triumphantly succeeds in recreating the mental atmosphere of the late-Victorian world, suspended between religion and science.' Sunday Telegraph'... masterly'.The New Republic ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Marriage and family mark the beginning of culture
B. Malinowski's work constitutes an attempt to put anthropology on a scientific footing.
His theory is very simple: anthropology is the study of the institutions, which are organized to satisfy human biological needs. An example: sex as a human need is institutionalized, among other things, by marriage.

The author's list of basic needs and of universal institutional types seems rather arbitrary.
Basic needs: metabolism (food), reproduction (sex), corporeal well being (cleaning), security (cloths), activity (games), growth (of offspring), health (medecine).
Universal institutional types: reproduction (marriage), territory (city), physiology (gender), spontaneous associations (secret clubs), profession (sorcerer), upbringing (learning), health (hospitals).

Anthropology studies also the functions of the different institutions as well as evolutionary aspects (transformations of institutions).
The author makes also a distinction between basic and secondary (derivative) needs, which are economics, social control, education and political organization.
Every culture has its own values, norms, motives and customs.

Malinowski gives everytime a brief description of the different terms he uses.

Althoughmore or less out-of-date, this book is still a worth-while read. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars archane....in more ways than one...perhaps gnostic in several cults
Remarks on Frazer's Golden Bough (Paperback) by Ludwig Wittgenstein

Another useful book mercifully collected by Rush Rhys (we owe him a lot for his recordings of snatches of Wittgenstein's thoughts). Find these collected in "Philosophical Occasions: 1912-1951" and other oddities of Wittgensteinania.

Lots of Philosophy geeks end with Wittgenstein's Tractatus and dismiss his break with his own work in Remarks on Colour and his Blue and Brown books. In other words, Wittgenstein spent the rest of his life refuting his own work and trying to find that ineffable quality in language, particularly in the language of poetic imagination that somehow connects some to the divine.

Enter Wittgenstein's engagement with James George Frazer's Golden Bough, which he returned to again and again. Wittgenstein made a detour into Victorian imagination? Dead-end, or source for reconsideration of the limits of language elucidated in the Tractaus? You decide.

The remarks he makes here do not seem all that insightful to me, and Wittgenstein appears to have bought into the argument that Frazer's theory of the killing of the sacred King was a valid hermeneutic structure, although Wittgenstein's goals were seeking poetics and the force of metaphor. Wittgenstein apparently was unaware that Frazer's work was being dismantled and discredited by serious Anthropologists even in his lifetime, and that the Golden Bough, while a rollicking good novel, was scientifically on the level of phrenology and to anthropology what Erich von Däniken is archaeology.

4-0 out of 5 stars This book is out of print, but...

Editorial Review

Product Description

In the first full-length analysis of Wittgenstein's Remarks on Frazer's Golden Bough, Brian R. Clack presents a fresh and innovative interpretation of Wittgenstein's conception of religion. While previous commentators have tended to sideline the Remarks on Frazer, Clack shows how the key to Wittgenstein's thought on religion lies in these remarks on primitive magico-religious observances. This book shows that Wittgenstein neither embraces expressivism, as it is generally assumed, nor straightforwardly denies instrumentalism. Focusing instead on Wittgenstein's suggestion that magic is somehow akin to metaphysics, a view of ritual as the spontaneous expression of human beings (conceived as "ceremonial animals") is presented.
