The individual and his body in the Ancient Mediterranean basin

L’individu et son corps dans le bassin méditerranéen ancien

*  *  *

Published on Monday, September 05, 2016Monday, September 05, 2016 by Céline Guilleux

Summary

Le corps d’un individu relie celui-ci aux autres membres de sa communauté, il constitue un support physique commode pour interagir avec eux. Sans corps, pas de sens ; sans sens, pas de communication possible. Toutefois, le corps sépare aussi l’individu de ses contemporains : par ses particularismes innés ou acquis, il le différencie des autres. Il est donc à la fois un facteur de cohésion et de discrimination sociale. Cette problématique, très explorée en anthropologie sociale, a été presque complètement ignorée dans les études sur le Proche-Orient cunéiforme. En hittitologie, seule la lexicographie des parties du corps humain a été étudiée jusqu’à présent.
