    Morris'in Din Antropolojisi'nin şekillenmesine öncülük etmiş sosyal bilimcilerin çalışmalarından derlediği bu kitap bir yan okuma olarak Din Antropolojisi okuması yapan herkesin başucunda yer almalı Ancak bu çalışma Elementary Forms of Religious Life Purity and Danger Magic Science and Religion gibi pek çok eserin ön okuması eşliğinde okuyucuya aradığını verecektir Kitabı bir ana referans kaynağı olarak almayı doğru bulmadığım gibi tek başına yapılmış bir okumasının da yetersiz olacağı kanaatindeyim Zorlayıcı bir çalışma olması ve pek çok farklı kuramcının çalışmalarına ayrı ayrı ve ilişkisel olarak yer vermesi dolayısıyla çevirisini okumanın da oldukça yorucu olduğunu belirtmeliyim Mümkün olduğu takdirde tüm sosyal bilimler eserlerinde olduğu gibi orijinalinin okunması taraftarıyım

    I bought this textbook at Borders back in the late 80's I was trying to get into graduate school for anthropology and at the time the relation of religion to human nature was my primary interest what was I thinking? The book was a good one for independent study though The theoretical summaries are thorough and not too taxing for a recent grad I was led in the direction of some important works which I subseuently read with gusto Durkheim Elementary Forms of the Religious Life; Freud Totem and Taboo; probably others I can't remember right now As it turned out I needed to read these in graduate culture theorysystems seminars later down the roadThe book is most likely still relevant to anthropology students as I don't think it is too out of date Very little if any seminal work has been done recently on the topic as far as I know But be sure to use it as a beacon to the classics of anthropology not as a work you would possibly use and cite in an exam or thesis
