Summary
"Exploring the close relationship between the real, the symbolic and imaginary Lévi-Strauss held that 'the real, the symbolic and the imaginary' are three separate orders. Maurice Godelier demonstrates the contrary: the real is not separate from the symbolic and the imaginary. Godelier's book goes to the strategic heart of the social sciences, for to examine the nature and role of the imaginary and the symbolic is also to attempt to account for the basic components of all societies and ultimately of human existence. And these aspects in turn shape our social and personal identity"--
