Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This essay is an analysis of how Wolof children learn exchange, 'the primary value of Wolof society.' By employing a series of examples of exchange situations followed by detailed analyses, the author demonstrates how children learn the value of giving, especially food, and the status of the giver. 'The Wolof education system aims less at imposing adult rules on the child, than at creating conditions by which a child gains an awareness and a respect for the 'laws of brothers and equals'' (p. 233).
