Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Dec 12, Gavin White rated it really liked it Shelves: The story that the Dogon a tribe in Mali, West Africa knew of the binary nature of Sirius and knew of Saturn’s rings all hails from this work. To be sure, the material treated here is fascinating but it is often so dense that it is incredibly difficult to grasp the bigger picture. The sheer amount of variant traditions recorded also makes ‘The Pale Fox’ is one of those seminal books that has had a considerable effect on dogoj non-conventional thought, which very few people have actually read.

The sheer amount of variant traditions recorded also makes it difficult to form any clear idea ofx the underlying narrative. Yet I have to give this book a high rating because of the rich and unique symbolic material it contains. The anthropological community has largely dismissed this work as a creative aberation formulated by an over zealous investigator investing his material with a significance not accorded it in the native culture. However, its value for me was the way it described the sacred landscape as a setting for a series of cosmological rites.

Robert KG Temple has an amazing book about this because the Dogon have based their religion on a synchronization with the rotation of a dwarf star around its partner and they couldn’t have possibly been able to see that or have that concept, yet they do!

This is probably one of the weirdest anomalies in the world. I’ve been researching this since I was ddogon People have tried to poo-poo this, but this is the real deal.

Something “fishy” is going on for sure! Jun 20, Joe Milazzo rated it really liked it. Not necessarily the most lay-reader-friendly introduction to Dogon cosmology — an understanding of which is vital to an appreciation of Afrocentric and Afrofuturist thought — but the most thorough and least touched with hokum. And while the Sirius B esoterica is ofx, more so the Dogon’s four-fold theory of signs. Griaule’s parsing of these figures produces some of the most memorable passages in the book.
