O segredo como fato, o fato como segredo

  • Suely Kofes Universidade Estadual de Campinas


Social Anthropology deals at present in crude con-
cepts, tribe, clan, age-set, &c, representing social
masses and a supposed relation between these mas-
ses. The science will make little progress on this low
level of abstraction, if it be considered abstraction
at all, and it is necessary for further advance to use
the concepts to denote relations, defined in terms of
social situations, and relations between these rela-
tions. (Evans-Pritchard, 1940, p. 266)
Social anthropology became the science of descent
groups, and descent groups and their constitution
came to be crucial issues in accounting for the core
function of integrating society and keeping it toge-
ther. (Roy Wagner, 1974, p. 97)
What intrigues me is the consistent parallel, the re-
peated echo, between intellectual propagation and
procreative acts, between knowledge and kinship.
