Intermediate Types Among Primitive Folk : A Study in Social Evolution, Hardback Book

Intermediate Types Among Primitive Folk : A Study in Social Evolution Hardback

Part of the Routledge Revivals: The Collected Works of Edward Carpenter series

Description

Intermediate Types among Primitive Folk expands on Carpenter's idea of the Intermediate type; a person of mixed sexes such as a feminine body with a masculine mind or vice versa. Originally published in 1914, this text explores the role that intermediate types played amongst early civilisations as well as in religion and military situations.

Whilst later civilisations tended to look down on those who did not fit into traditional gender roles, some early peoples saw intermediate types as important figures in their social organisation.

This title will be of interest to students of sociology, gender studies and anthropology.
