Marcel Mauss


The hereby accomplished publication of a short summary of a talk that Marcel Mauss gave at the Société d’histoires du droit on May 10, 1928, is a continuation of a recent trend aimed to make more of Mauss’ work available to scholars who are unable to read French. The talk was originally published in 1928 in Revue Historique de Droit français et étranger, quatrième série, Vol. 7: 331–333. The original in French is also reproduced below. Translated from the French by Nora Scott.
