Saints, Heroes, Myths, and Rites: Classical Durkheimian Studies of Religion and Societyby Marcel Mauss, Henri Hubert, Robert Hertz
Pub. Date: 08/28/2009
Publisher: Taylor & Francis
Classical Durkheimian Studies of Myth and the Sacred presents English translations of several important essays, some never before translated, by members of the famous Annee sociologique group around Emile Durkheim. These works by Marcel Mauss, Henri Hubert, and Robert Hertz are key contributions to today's growing interest in and reinterpretation of Durkheimian thought on culture, religion, and symbolism. The central thrust in this new interpretive effort uses the Durkheimian theory of the sacred to understand the symbolism and meanings of cultural structures and narratives more generally. This book is vital to any contemporary collection emphasizing social theory.
