Mary Douglas RIP

dotCommonweal links to a couple of obituaries of Dame Mary Douglas in the British press (She died on May 16). Anyone who's studied anthropology or religion is sure to have encountered her writing.

The Commonweal post mentions but doesn't link to the profile that they did on her a few years back. Here it is.

Oh, yes, Natural Symbols is a classic.
