Lost Worlds: How Our European Ancestors Coped with Everyday Life and Why Life Is So Hard Today by Arthur E. Inhof
This work combines folklore, religion, anthropology, psychology and history of art. It reconstructs the world and worldview of Johannes Hooss, a farmer in a remote Hessian village, and explores the various systems that made sense of his circumscribed existence.
