GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS BIBLIOGRAPHY, ,,, PRIMITIVE EDUCATION IN NORTH AMERICA BY GEORGE A. PETTITT I. INTRODUCTION CIVILIZATION is, of course, a gold mine of paradoxes; but none of them is more curious than the success and purported failure of America's magnificent experi- ment in mass education.   Insofar as these customs survive in modern Polynesia and North America, they have been influenced by international gay culture and other aspects of social change. Contemporary anthropologists no longer look to (vanished) “primitive” cultures for clues to the past, nor do they—for the most part—seek some universally “normal” human.   education in primitive societies In its long march to the present, humankind developed skills of creating, sustaining, and transmitting culture. These cultural survival skills, which have persisted from prehistoric times to the present, became the basis of formal schooling.

Primitive men had relatively narrow social and cultural contacts The organization of primitive life was tribal, not political Primitive cultures of reading and writing Primitive Education The model of life is relatively static and absolute, and it is transmitted from one. Primitive America provides a sobering cultural materialist counterpoint to cultural globalization theory’s arguments about the decline of state power and the collapse of cultural nationalisms. The historical ground that seems to have fallen out of post-structuralist and post-modern theories of the autonomy of cultural politics is illuminated and restored by Smith’s timely book.   The term education can be applied to primitive cultures only in the sense of enculturation, which is the process of cultural transmission. A primitive person, whose culture is the totality of his universe, has a relatively fixed sense of cultural continuity and timelessness. About Education in North America. Education in North America is a concise and thorough reference guide to the main themes in American and Canadian education from their historical roots to the present time. The book brings a global awareness to the discussion of local issues in North American education and sheds light on the similar and different ways that Canada and the United States have.
