La vie quotidienne à Mayotte (Comores) : essai d'anthropologie compréhensive

Abstract : This study is about contemporary everyday life on the island of Mayotte, Comorose, Mozambique Channel. I considered aspects of this culturally constructed frame. I tried to take into account the meaning the culture users give to their everyday experience and to the symbols used to express it. A semantic analysis of the langage shimaore) of daily life has permitted an exploration of attitude and behaviours inside the limits of interpretation grids given by culture itself to its members. I successively considered spatio-temporal frame, social and family world, then the universe of ideas, with an islamic and traditionnal world-view, action, and particularly interactions, gender image, relations to the material world, and finaly relations to supernatural. This study contains and index of essential notions, general bibliography of anthropology, and a specialised one about islam and the Comoros islands.
