Wisdom From A Rainforest (the Spiritual Journey Of An Anthropologist)
|Author||Stuart A. Schlegel|
|Dimension||6 x 9|
Portrays the Teduray's deep respect for nature and for each other, and vividly recounts how their behavior and traditions revolved around kindness and compassion for each other and the spirits sharing their worlds. Describes the Teduray's remarkable legal system, strong story-telling tradition, cosmology and ritual celebrations. Alongside the ethnography is the author's recounting of his own personal transformation; how his own worldview as a member of an advanced, civilized society was shaken to the core by a so-called primitive people. Finalist, 1999 National Book Awards, for Social Sciences.
