Another key piece of evidence for the Marxists perspective is the fact that the Catholic Church is arguably allowing the spread of aids due to its stance against contraception.
, his uncompleted thesis ‘On Prayer’ has not featured prominently in these accounts.
By ‘dialectical’, I mean his thought is critical and recursive.
My aim is to expound Mauss’s text to bring out the structure of the argument, following this dialectic at work.
Does this work add anything beyond the already-published materials, or is its neglect deserved ?
The work consists of two parts, a lengthy attempt to define the topic and an investigation of the relevant Australian ethnography with this definition in mind.I offer a careful textual reading, although the reader should not underestimate the degree of interpretation in the account proposed.There is indeed a dilemma in such a reading : it is my contention that in this text Mauss makes a decisive move towards identifying a logic specific to the nature both of sociological objects and their understanding.The Marxists perspective generally makes many valid arguments which society can relate to even today.The idea of caste system is still relevant in many Hindu traditions (although generally frowned upon).This detailed understanding of the historical nature of social intelligibility constitutes Mauss’s potential to contribute to contemporary debates ; I shall sketch an outline summary as a conclusion.This reading may also allow us, in the realm of the history of ideas, to see a mutation in the development of the Durkheimian project, a shift from the framework of the Rules to that of the Elementary Forms, and to estimate Mauss’s share in it. Mauss’s essay attempts to claim ground and to construct on it a controlled, reasoned, and therefore reliable, way of understanding social phenomena.Yet it is important not to exceed the text and the intentions of the author ; my task has been therefore to follow the moves being made, to do justice to them, and to point to their wider significance.For this reason, I do not make much reference to wider debates, either of the period in question or contemporary ; my aim is narrower, to establish a case for the importance of the text as a contribution on the nature of sociological understanding. First, this essay represents Mauss’s most sustained engagement with issues of theory and method, and as such commands our interest, for Mauss’s contemporary significance as a social theorist is increasing rather than diminishing.This neglect is unsurprising, for the text was printed privately in 1909, and remained extremely rare until it was put into the public domain by Karady’s edition of Mauss’s Oeuvres in 1968.A recent translation has drawn attention to the text, and raises the question (for English-speaking sociologists) of what significance should be attributed to the essay.
