Mary Douglas

The author of Risk and culture and Risk and blame has passed away, I´ve just read on I don´t need to say that these two books are ones of the most inspiring I have ever read. The other ones have impressed me as well, but Douglas´ risk, danger and blame theories just blow me away! And of course I´ve been thinking about them a lot during the last five months. Douglas has spendt her life studying the idea of purity and now she´s dealing with it herself... May she rest in peace.
