Through a close examination of four Melanesian religious traditions, Whitehouse identifies a set of recurrent interconnections between styles of religious transmission, systems of memory, and patterns of political association. He argues that these interconnections may shed light on a variety of general problems in history, archaeology, and social theory.

About the Author:

Harvey Whitehouse is at Queen's University of Belfast.

Review:

`Arguments and Icons is ... a brilliant example of interdisciplinary work bearing on significant issues in the comparative study of religion in particular, and cognitive anthropology more generally...this volume should be considered required reading for those who fear reductionism but are
interested in how cognition might bear on complicated cultural systems. Whitehouse preserves the rich complexity and detail of the phenomena under consideration while rendering it scientifically tractable.'
Justin L. Barrett, Journal of Cognition and Culture

`Whitehouse's Inside the Cult (Oxford, 1995)...established a model for marrying cognitive science with field work. He's done it again.'
Justin L. Barrett, Journal of Cognition and Culture
