The Elementary Forms of Religious Life by Emile Durkheim tells the story of the Australian Aborigines and their practice of "toteism." Durkheim sought the simplest form of religion possible and sought to discover the essential religious nature of the human race. It explores the reasons why people everywhere feel the need to seek a supernatural experience that is outside of themselves.
