Om Structure and Function in Primitive Soci
Whilst the greatest effort has been made to ensure the quality of this text, due to the historical nature of this content, in some rare cases there may be minor issues with legibility. An examination of the essays in this volume will suggest that his writings have been just as influential as his personal contacts. He has not, considering that he has been engaged in teaching and' research in social anthropology for almost fifty years, written' as much as most persons of his academic eminence. What he hasl written, however, has been faultless. We do not mean by this that' we necessarily accept his methods or conclusions in detail, but rather that the point of View he expresses could not have been better expressed. Each of the essays is perfect in conception and in expression, and they are tied together by a consistency and direction which is rare in modern anthropology.
