An Amazonian Myth: The Woman Who Was Torn in Two

Speaker(s)
Description

Chris Knight continues his exploration of key myths from the French anthropologist Claude Levi-Strauss’ four-volume masterpiece, 'An Introduction to the Science of Mythology' (‘Mythologiques.’) Tonight's narrative, ‘The Hunter Monmaneki and his Wives’ (Tukuna tribe, Amazonia), tells of a profound shift from periodic to non-periodic marriage, resulting in contradictions for womankind which eventually tear her apart. If you want to understand the ultimate origins of patriarchal marriage and the family, come along.
