Time, Work and Culture in the Middle Ages by Jacques Le Goff
Book DescriptionJacques Le Goff is a prominent figure in the tradition of French medieval scholarship, profoundly influenced by the "Annales" school, notably, Bloch, Febvre, and Braudel, and by the ethnographers and anthropologists Mauss, Dumezil, and Levi-Strauss. In building his argument for "another Middle Ages" ("un autre moyen age"), Le Goff documents the emergence of the collective "mentalite" from many sources with scholarship both imaginative and exact.
