Writing, Religion and Revolt in Bahia.
Goody, Jack
Visible Language, v20 n3 p318-43 Sum 1986
Discusses the impact of writing on culture, especially the psychosocial consequences of literacy as a "technology of the intellect." Describes the role played by writing in both a slave revolt in nineteenth century Brazil and a preliterate African culture. Argues that "literacy" serves too many functions to be used as an all-encompassing descriptive term. (JD)
