Not illustrated. 1921 Excerpt: ...former is illustrated by the genealogy of Greek families; the latter, by the Roman worship of emperors, which itself but represented an imitation of an Oriental custom that was once very common. All these cases, however, are clearly secondary phenomena, transferences of previously existing god-ideas to men who were either living or had already died. But even apart from this, the hypothesis is rendered completely untenable by the facts with which the history of totemism and of the earlier, more primitive conditions has made us familiar. Not a trace of ancestor worship is to be found among really primitive men..We have clear proof of this in their manner of disposing of the dead.

Totemism, moreover, gives evidence of the fact that the cult of animal ancestors long anteceded that of human ancestors. Thus, then, the theory that ancestor worship was the primitive religion belongs essentially to an age practically ignorant of totemism and its place in myth development, as well as of the culture of primitive man.

Book Description 2007. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 564 Elements of Folk Psychology (1900-1920) was the last work produced the Wilhelm Wundt. As the subtitle of the book emphasizes, it offers outlines of a psychological history of the development of mankind. It is a descriptive account of human development and deals at some length with the forms of original tribal organizations and of the consummation of marriage, with soul, demon and totem cults, and with various phenomena of somewhat primitive culture. On the other hand, it describes in barest outlines the social movements that reach over not the historical times, such as the founding of states and cities, the origin of legal systems, and the like. The study relies largely on Suppositions and hypotheses because facts at the author’s disposal did not allow him to point out various transitions with absolute certainty. Nevertheless, the conjectured process moves on the factual plane from the beginning to the end.
