    Great content but an absolute chore to read.

    It's a forceful skewering of some of the classic theories of "primitive" religion—the intellectualist theories of E.B. Tylor and James Frazer, the sociological explanation offered by Emile Durkheim, and Lucien Levy-Bruhl's philosophical model of the "primitive mentality"—but, ultimately, that's all it is. Evans-Pritchard offers very little in the way of a research program or method(s) that would would avoid the hazards of previous theorizing, except to say that more anthropological fieldwork needs to be done.

    Published in 1965, this was an excellent summary and analysis of the development and debunking of many theories of religion from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Its lucidity still resonates amid the long-lasting assumptions that continue to inform crass generalizations about indigenous peoples, even half a century after Evans-Pritchard presented these lectures.

    Kitap ilkel toplumların dinsel inançlarını sosyolojik, psikolojik ve antropolojik olarak inceliyor. Kitap daha çok bu konularda yazılmış eserlerin eleştirilerinden oluşuyor. Bu bakımdan aslında akademik bir eleştiri kitabı da denebilir.
