| STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2012 - 3
A. Caforio, Life and language of objets. Some anthropological hypothesis
Some markings by very well known authors about object-centered love in Western societies
and traditional ones have been well brought out in this article. For instance, Margaret Mead’s
observations on the issue of the social role of object love teaching in first childhood bringing up
have been properly seen into. Besides, Claude Lévi-Strauss’ sharp markings of symbolic object
importance in regard to all societies have been looked into to a great extent in the same essay.
Key words: objet, western societies, role, symbol, traditional societies.
