Based on the field studies of the Tibetan regions in the eastern margin of the Tibetan Plateau, the speaker proposes a type of human society: the primal community. This refers to a community in which people'sidentity was based both on kinship and shared space; neighbors are relatives. It was formed at the beginning of the human settled life in the Neolithic Age, and it also exists in the family life at the beginning of an individual's life. The speaker will explain how the concepts and ideas of the primal community were deeplyimprinted in people's hearts. How their ideals are constantly pursued, practiced and disillusioned.
