Résumé

Winner of the CNRS Gold Medal in 2001, anthropologist Maurice Godelier shares some aspects of his activities, his life, and his research.

First he takes us on a field trip to the Baruya of Papua-New Guinea, among whom he worked for seven years, describing his research on kinship ties and the initiation ceremonies of the various age groups.

He leads a seminar for the EHESS (Ecole des hautes études en sciences sociales). He impresses on his students the need to develop a true scientific consciousness.

Our work is guided by the way scientists question the world around them and we translate their research into images to help people to understand the world better and to awaken their curiosity and wonderment.
