Now in paperback, a sweeping look at "primitive belief" versus "scientific knowledge," by the author of the renowned The Trumpet Shall Sound. Called "a classic study" by Booklist, this engaging inquiry into the nature of knowledge shows that "Western science" and "primitive beliefs" may not be so far apart as they seem. Renowned anthropologist and sociologist Peter Worsley begins Knowledges with his ongoing investigation of Australian aboriginal approaches to science and the natural world, and goes on to shatter conventional distinctions between science and culture, knowledge and belief. On the way, Worsley treats us to a lively and accessible examination of pre-European navigation of the Pacific, Western medicine, sub- and countercultures, nationalism, religion, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the iconology of Disneyland.
