Description

The object of this book, first published in 1928, is a study of the ways in which those who were once called ‘primitives’ conceive of their own individuality. The author inquires into the notions they possess of their life-principle, their soul, and their personality, often encountering that many peoples only had ‘pre-notions’ of such concepts.
