La diversité culturelle : du point de vue de l'anthropologie

Abstract : For an anthropologist, alterity comes in two a spect : the obvious diversity of the ways of thinking and living of the different human groups that make up the world's population and the diversity of the forms of societies within which those groups live. After clarifying the meaning and use of the word 'culture', our point is to highlight the diversity of cultures through a few examples and to show how anthropology can make that diversity meaningful by revealing its inner logic, and showing that the empirical multiplicity of cultural facts is in reality the product of the transformations of a certain number of social structures and schemes of thought.
