“This is the meaning of James Bond, it’s the meaning of the sleuth, the meaning of the obsession with crime in our world, because the criminal or the criminologist alike are both hunters. They belong to the old paleolithic world and are really a new type of human being in our midst—the person who explores the total human environment the way the old hunter and the food-gatherer used to explore his entire environment as a unified field. Because man the planter, man the basket-weaver, man the pot-maker, and so on, came in after the paleolithic man, and we’ve had thousands of years of the planter.”
