Riassunto: The Temiars, a Mon-Khmer-speaking Orang Asli society living in the uplands of northern Peninsular Malaysia, have long attracted popular attention in the West for reports that ascribed to them the special psychotherapeutic known as 'Senoi Dreamwork'. However, the reality of Temiar religion and society, as studied and recorded by Geoffrey Benjamin over 50 years, is even more fascinating than that popular portrayal - which is shown to be based on a serious misrepresentation of Temiar practice.

When Benjamin first lived in the isolated villages of the Temiars between 1964 and 1965, he encountered a people who lived by swidden farming supplemented by hunting and fishing. They practised their own unexportable, localised animistic religion in an area where the main religion of civilisation was formerly Mahayana Buddhism and is now Islam. Fifty years later, the Temiars have become much more embedded in broader Malaysian society, while retaining their distinctive way of life, including continuing involvement with their complex shamanic religion.

Benjamin's ongoing fieldwork in the 1970s, 1990s and 2000s followed the Temiars through processes of religious dis-enchantment and re-enchantment, as they reacted in various ways to the advent of Baha'i, Islam and Christianity. Some Temiars even developed a new religion of their own. In addition to its rich ethnographic reportage, the book proposes a novel theory of religion and develops a deeply insightful account of the changing intellectual framework of anthropology over the past half-century.

Descrizione libro NUS Press, Singapore, 2014. Soft cover. Condizione libro: New. Benjamin's work amongst the Temiar aboriginal people of North Malaysia began as he prepared for his doctoral thesis in the 1960s. In this book, he not only revisits his earlier work, but brings it up to date on the basis of his continued living with and research amongst the Temiars since then. This ethnographic study can be read on many levels, not only as a study of Temiar religion, but also as an exploration of religion in societies generally and as a record of the changing intellectual framework of anthropology since Benjamin first encountered the Temiars. 450 pages. Please see the scan of the contents page for further details. Weight: 0.9kg. Post free within Malaysia. Codice libro della libreria ML3008
