In and Out of Each Other's Bodies: Theory of Mind, Evolution, Truth, and the Nature of the Social


What is human sociality? How are universals such as truth and doubt variously demonstrated and negotiated in different cultures? This book by distinguished anthropologist Maurice Bloch offers an accessible introduction to these and other fundamental questions. Bloch shows that the social consists of two very different things. One is a series of continual microadjustments between individuals who read each others minds and thus, as in sex and birth, go in and out of each others minds and Bodies. The other is a time-defying system of roles and groups apparently stable in time. Interaction at this level is created by ritual and is unique to humans. What is referred to by the word religion is a part of this, but it is not separate. The study of religion as such is therefore theoretically misleading. A second major theme is the way truth is established in different cultures. Blochs arguments go against recent approaches in anthropology that have sought to relativize. Bloch argues for a much greater degree of universality, illustrating with cases from Madagascar.
