Tradition and transmission. Bantu, Indo-European and circumpolar Great Traditions / Knut Odner.

Title: Tradition and transmission. Bantu, Indo-European and circumpolar Great Traditions / Knut Odner.
Author(s): Odner, Knut.
Date: 2000.
Publisher: Bergen, Norway: Norse Publications
Abstract: Author consummates lifetime of individualist anthropology in study of Great Tradition concept for explaining central aspects of many societies, particularly of apparent (Kikuyu, Saami) or would-be (Norwegian) egalitarian ones. He discusses cultural traditions in general, Indo-European and Saami cultural traditions, with examples of similar myths from different racial sources. He detects common circumpolar tradition of enchantment, particularly in Eurasia, and discusses shamanism there. He evaluates work of Dumezil, Gimbutas, Bloch and Veblen. Coastal Saami at Nesseby (Unjárgga), where he did fieldwork, give example of tradition, clear but not assertive cultural distinctiveness and adaptability to modern life and travel opportunities. Personal, relevant and thought-provoking postscript.
