Chapter Summary

This conclusion chapter of the book highlights the fragility of some consecrated oppositions - between myth / history, oral / written, heterodoxy / orthodoxy, Islam brotherhood / political Islam, magic / holiness, rural / urban, margin / center - that determine the outcome of some important studies on the processes and political-religious practices in Morocco. It shows historical and social-anthropological tensions that drive the dualities which constitute an elastic semantics in which, for and against which say and act take sense. Reviewing and discussing some of the anthropological assumptions in this conclusion chapter, the author especially highlights some remarks and draw conclusions. Conclusions are considered less as a theoretical and epistemological completion as problematizations that could possibly open up avenues to other lands and other reflections. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: anthropological assumptions; elastic semantics; history; Morocco; myth; political Islam; political-religious practices; social-anthropological tensions
