Résumé : Partant de l'opposition du miel et du tabac, qui tient une place considérable dans la vie et la pensée des Indiens de l'Amérique du Sud, l'auteur explore à travers leurs mythes deux itinéraires qui se rejoignent : le miel exprime la puissance séductrice de la nature, tandis que la fumée du tabac, s'élevant vers les êtres surnaturels, retient l'homme sur la voie qui l'éloigne de la culture. [mollat]. _______________ Sir Raymond William Firth, CNZM, FBA (25 March 1901 ?- 22 February 2002) was an ethnologist from New Zealand. As a result of Firth's ethnographic work, actual behaviour of societies (social organization) is separated from the idealized rules of behaviour within the particular society (social structure). He was a long serving Professor of Anthropology at London School of Economics, and is considered to have singlehandedly created a form of British economic anthropology. (Wikipedia) _______________
