Ce manuel s adresse aux tudiants de Licence et aux candidats au CAPES et l agrgation Il contient toute l algbre fondamentale indispensable ce niveau Les principaux concepts sont introduits par le biais d exemples significatifs Des exercices et des problmes corrigs compltent chaque chapitre, How are religious ideas presented acquired and transmitted Confronted with religious practices anthropologists have typically been content with sociological generalizations informed by vague intuitive models of cognitive processes Yet the modern cognitive theories promise a fresh understanding of how religious ideas are learnt and if the same cognitive processes can be shown to underlie all religious ideologies then the comparative study of religions will be placed on a wholly new footing The present book is a contribution to this ambitious programme In closely focused essays a group of anthropologists debate the particular nature of religious concepts and categories and begin to specify the cognitive constraints on cultural acquisition and transmission, This text introduces students scholars and interested educated readers to the issues of human memory broadly considered encompassing both individual memory collective remembering by societies and the construction of history The book is organized around several major questions How do memories construct our past How do we build shared collective memories How does memory shape history This volume presents a special perspective emphasizing the role of memory processes in the construction of self identity of shared cultural norms and concepts and of historical awareness Although the results are fairly new and the techniques suitably modern the vision itself is of course related to the work of such precursors as Frederic Bartlett and Aleksandr Luria who in very different ways represent the starting point of a serious psychology of human culture, b A watershed book that masterfully integrates insights from evolutionary biology genetics psychology economics and more to explore the development and workings of human societies b br br There is no good reason why human societies should not be described and explained with the same precision and success as the rest of nature Thus argues evolutionary psychologist Pascal Boyer in this uniquely innovative book br br Integrating recent insights from evolutionary biology genetics psychology economics and other fields he offers precise models of why humans engage in social behaviors such as forming families tribes and nations or creating gender roles In fascinating thought provoking passages he explores questions such as Why is there conflict between groups Why do people believe low value information like rumors Why are there religions What is social justice What explains morality Boyer provides a new picture of cultural transmission that draws on the pragmatics of human communication the constructive nature of memory in human brains and human motivation for group formation and cooperation
