This is a remarkable work which captures the reader's imagination as only few books do. From a description of the counting system of Iqwaye people of Papua New Guinea, the author develops a deeper and broader interpretation of the Iqwaye kinship system and cosmology, culminating in a powerful critique of western assumptions about the development of rational thought.

About the Author:

Jadran Mimica is a Lecturer in Anthropology, at the University College London.

Review:

“... impressive not only for those who specialise in anthropology but for anyone concerned with understanding man.” ―Mainichi Daily News

“... complex, wide-ranging, provocative, irritating, unorthodox and most stimulating.” ―Canberra Anthropology

“... this book is without parallel...ethnographically rich and philosophically informed.” ―Oceania

“... Mimica has carried through a quite original piece of work and thought. This really is the kind of 'new anthropology' for which the discipline is searching.” ―Professor Marilyn Strathern, University of Cambridge
