Primitive Society denotes simple human societies that are assumed to represent how human beings lived in a community in the earliest times of history. The dictionary defines the Primitive Society as belonging to the beginning or to the first times. While primitive can be used in its formal sense to describe simple societies, the favored term today is Hunter-gatherer society. The term Primitive Society is now out of favor in both sociology and anthropology because it not just appears but certainly denigrates these simple societies by suggesting they are less civilized than modern societies.
The Reinvention of Primitive Society by Adam Kuper takes account of new research in the field. It coincides with a revival of the myth of primitive society by the 'indigenous peoples' movement. The Reinvention of Primitive Society is Adam Kuper's best selling critique of ideas about the origins of society and religion that have been much debated since Darwin.
