Ce que la Sibérie nous dit de l'origine des inégalités

Abstract : Continuing the debate on the books written by Emmanuel Guy and Charles Stépanoff, the article proposes to reconsider, in the light of the Siberian counter-examples, the definition of wealth and the societies structured by it (i.e. the demarcation criterion between Alain Testart's "world I" and "world II"). Wealth thus redefined is found in all societies. Regarding the shift towards the structuring of social relations by wealth, it is no longer synonymous with the existence of payments (bride price, wergild), but with the social power now conferred by the possession of goods.
