Summary/Abstract: One of the best and most interesting works of Goody, examines the influence of writing on culture, especially at its institutional level. Providing numerous examples drawn from the Middle and Far East, West Africa and Medieval Europe, the author presents the logic of writing and the formulas it introduces into the organisation of society. He also shows general changes, follows how religions, economy, state and law are formed under the influence of writing and acknowledges the beginnings of the rules that govern these fields now.
