forms of thought

Review :


I collect the English translations of this contemporary group of French greco-roman scholars, or sort of contemporary. Naquet died last year. People like Vernant, Dumezil, Vidal-Naquet, Berard.. There's quite a few of them, and I really like their style of writing and their exquisite scholarship. This text begins with a piece of contextualisation that is really interesting tracing the archaic categories of opposition along with the history of cultural anthropology among the jesuits, etc etc.. I can't even properly characterize this book. If its your thing you'll know its your thing. I was happy to find it.
