Item description for The Collected Works of Edward Sapir: Culture (Collected Works of Edward Sapir, No 3) (Collected Works of Edward Sapir) by Regna Darnell Edward Sapir...
Volume Three of The Collected Works of Edward Sapir contains all of Sapir's professional publications, as well as all of his recorded lectures, not previously published, on the concept of culture and on the relationship of culture to the individual as a member of society. It contains as well Sapir's cultural criticism -- his writings on literature, art and music and his published essays, comments and reviews on leading intellectual and political issues of his day. Though Sapir is remembered primarily as a linguist, his theoretical writings on culture were ahead of their time and, thus, remain remarkably relevant today. And as a culture critic, he stands as a model of a scholar using his expertise to comment, for a wide audience, on contemporary social issues.
