Novas Perspetivas sobre o Neolítico 1

New Light in the Dawn
a new perspective on the Neolithic Revolution in Southwest Asia

Trevor Watkins
Rhind Lectures 2009, Edimburgo


Desde que Gordon Childe criara o termo Revolução Neolítica (ou Agrícola), a investigação das origens e primórdios da agricultura no Lebante Mediterrâneo têm preocupado a gerações de arqueólogos/as. A pregunta de "por que, então? por que não antes?" continua a desafiar-nos. Recentes avanços na aplicação da teoria da evolução à psicologia cognitiva e a teoria cultural pode ser relacionado com o mundo material e simbólico que estas comunidades criaram durante este periodo da pre-historia.

Podemos ver como as pessoas naquela época começou a viver de uma maneira nova, porque a natureza das faculdades cognitivas e culturais tornam isso possível. Podemos explorar as complexidades conceituais da formação e manutenção destas novas comunidades e podemos definir essas inovações desde o ponto de vista da evolução cognitiva e cultural do ser humano, que permitiu o uso de uma cultura totalmente simbólica, seja na linguagem, ou na arte, a arquitetura, ou a ciência.

Introdução por Dr Barbara Crawford, Presidenta da Society of Antiquaries of Scotland

A Exaltação da Cabeça entre os Celtas - Livro

Dentro de todo eido de estudo há sempre algumas obras que pola sua relevância e significação para a investigação são consideradas como clássicos; são obras que foram pioneiras, ou bem são por abrirem um novo campo ou bem por oferecerem a primeira síntese duma nascente tema da estudo, ou bem por ser ambas coisas ao mesmo tempo.

Este ultimo é o casso de L´Exaltation de la Tête dans La Pensée et dans L´Art des Celtes de Pierre Lambrechts, na que se passava por primeira vez revista ao alongado acumulo de material que sobre a sacralidade do crânio existia no domínio céltico, desde a antiguidade e o registro arqueológico a literatura insular medieval, uma obra certamente muito recomendável e ainda de utilidade hoje em dia.

Em resume uma obra de referencia, como muitas outras nunca reeditada, e que queda aqui livremente ao vosso dispor para que a descarregar:

1ª PARTE: L´Aniconisme de L´Art Celtique

2ªPARTE: La Tête dans L´Art Plastique Celtique et Gallo-Romain

3ª PARTE: Le Thème de la Tête dans la Littérature Médiévale
