Epitome de Culturologia

Nature volume 139, page 310 (20 February 1937) | Download Citation



The series, of which this is the first volume, might well be symbolized by an inverted cone. The volumes of which it will be composed are classified into sections, begining with general surveys of the various branches of the study of man, and narrowing and intensifying with each successive section, until in the sixth and last, attention is focused on the cultural history and ethnology of Argentina. This Conception of gradual intensification of interest as basis of of regional study, if execution does not fall behind, is wholly admirable. Dr. Imbelloni has given the series a good send - off in his survey of the study of culture and the methods of investigation by cultural distributions.Several examples of the study of areas of cultural distibution in relation to specific cultural traits are given in appendixes.
