It is a dialogue between the human being and Nature. Restoring ancient customs and rites of different European and Asiatic folks, the authors search for answers on the questions: How did the human society arise? What has made the human being to be itself? Why monkeys have remained just monkeys? Why do people kill each other? And why only the human beings are capable of joining together in the process of labor and common creative activity?
