It exemplifies a particular biographical situation which is consonant with the general cultural-existential dynamics of the Yagwoia father-son relationship.Ce texte est une interprétation psychanalytique de l'ethnographie concernant la lutte d'un garçon Yagwoia-Anga pour se détacher de la sphère de ses relations paternelles et de ses frères agnatiques.
