Waymarks in the Exploration of Symbols

Victor Turner (Author), Edith Turner (Editor)
Hardcover ($39.95) Buy

A collection of Turner’s writings that gathers seven late pieces that reflect his thoughts on such subjects as pilgrimage, sacrifice, and liminal processes. “The essays reveal a passionate struggle between a committed conceptualization and a dedication to the telling detail. Turner is willing to address the moral and spiritual dimensions of being human, which are all too easily set aside by much social science.”—Anthropos
