前言: 可能跟法國的雜誌《查理周刊》遭到攻擊有關, 最近很多網友因為收尋”法國” & “伊斯蘭” 找到了我去年6月一直沒完成的文章  Lévi-Strauss眼中的法國; 我眼中的伊斯蘭   (本部落格沒完成的文章太多了! 不如改叫成 incomplete.wordpress.com 算了!!!). 有網友希望我能多寫 Lévi-Strauss 的論點, 但目前真的擠不出時間, 可是難得有人想了解我的偶像 (叫人類學者偶像也太奇怪了, 但突然間也想不倒用甚麼字眼), 所以決定放上我之前針對 Tristes Tropiques 《憂鬱的熱帶》 寫的期末報告. 報告有15頁,這篇先放前半段. 對, 不要再問了,只有英文版的, 請先懵懵啊讀 (放心,我不太用深澳的英文字眼, 我追求 public anthropology 境界). 2,163 more words
