Thought Styles by Mary Douglas

Takes the reader through a range of thought styles from the vulgar to the refined,
and leads them to an understanding of the rules of thought styles. This book
shows how  how thought styles work and how outsiders can learn the styles of insiders.

`Can anthropology explain what we buy when we go shopping? Or why one person chooses conventional medicine, another alternative medicine? In Thought Styles Mary Douglas deals with familiar things – shopping, furniture, our concerns for the environment – and takes anthropology to Good Housekeeping. The result is a thoughtful discussion of modern culture; Douglas is genial and humane and neither
uncomfortable or silly’ – Times Literary Supplement
