Overview

An invitation to read the peculiar anthropology developed by Lluís Duch, this book compiles the anthropologist and monk's personal philosophy as set forth throughout his more than 40 books and hundreds of scientific articles. Over the past three decades, Duch's work has been absorbed within the scope of the history of European culture, and this collection of texts aspires to be, on the occasion of his 75th birthday, a tribute to the thinker. Included are a general introduction to Duch's way of thinking, contributions centered on important parts of his work, two texts from Duch himself related to the issue of myth, a brief biography, and a full bibliography of his publications.Una invitación a la lectura de la peculiar antropología desarrollada por Lluís Duch, este libro recopila la filosofía personal del antropólogo y monje tal y como se ha presentado a lo largo de sus más de 40 libros y de centenares de artículos científicos. A través de más de tres décadas, la obra de Duch se ha ido consolidando en el ámbito de los estudios de historia de la cultura europea, y esta colección de textos quiere constituir, con ocasión de su septuagésimo quinto cumpleaños, un homenaje al pensador. Se incluye una introducción general a su pensamiento, aportaciones centradas en momentos principales de su obra, dos textos del propio Duch relativos a la cuestión del mito, una breve biografía y una bibliografía completa de sus publicaciones.
