The Dogon (N° 20899)

Germaine Dieterlen, a world-renowned specialist in Central and West Africa, has known and frequented the Dogon since 1937. This volume opens the door to the discovery of the Dogon world, Dogon thought, and the creation myth that supports this thought and maintains a remarkable collective memory. The author addresses, for the first time in her long career, a vast public. She uses simple language. The student, the layman or the curious will discover from two proposed axes - the "notion of person" and the "myth of creation" - a fascinating universe, that of an elaborate animist culture which questions the artificial borders between "natural" and "supernatural" drawn by the Western thought.
