Cat's Cradle Summary So, this guy named John—who wants you to call him Jonah—decides he's going to write a book on what important Americans were doing the day the atomic bomb hit Hiroshima.

Little does he know that researching the book will lead him to meet a fated group of people, to discover the religion of Bokononism, and, oh yeah, also. Alfred Cort Haddon, Sc.D., FRS, FRGS (24 May – 20 AprilCambridge) was an influential British anthropologist and ethnologist.

Initially a biologist, who achieved his most notable fieldwork, with W.H.R. Rivers, C.G. Seligman and Sidney Ray on the Torres Strait returned to Christ's College, Cambridge, where he had been an undergraduate, and effectively founded the School Alma mater: Christ's College, Cambridge.

In Cat's Cradle, John gives us all the info we need to understand the book thanks to a very convenient story-telling device: he's writing a book.

Cat's Cradles from Many Lands - Primary Source Edition by Kathleen Haddon,available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide. Both an anthropological text and a how-to-book, "String Figures" shows you that Cat's Craddle is the least of the string-games.

This book discusses string-games in every culture in the world on every continent, looing at the history and social importance of the games, then teaches you in step-by-step instruction, how to make them/5. Summary. John, the narrator of Cat's Cradle, began to write a book, titled The Day the World Ended, about the day the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima.

At that time, he was a Christian, but now he is a Bokononist. Bokononists believe that all of humanity is organized into teams, called karasses, that unknowingly carry out God's will.

Bokonon, the founder of the religion, warns that. All of the deft handling of arguments and ideas, the justifications of religion, national identity, and political philosophy, nothing more than a game of Cat's Cradle, pointless and without end. And, even after the disaster, after the world had ended and all man's stupidity laid bare, still the survivors clung to the delusions of the past.

for a book to be called The Day the World Ended. The book was to be factual. The book was to be an account of what important Americans had done on the day when the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan.

It was to be a Christian book. I was a Christian then. I am a Bokononist now. I would have been a Bokononist then, if there had File Size: KB.

The line 'The Cat's in the Cradle was, to my mind, a reference to 'The Cats and the Cradle', a Dutch Fairy tale. Without knowing the context of how it was used in the tv show, it's hard to know whether they were simply referring to the song, or if they intended meaning from the Fairy Tale the song is.

2. THE NOVEL’S MAIN CHARACTER WAS MODELED AFTER A REAL NOBEL PRIZE-WINNING SCIENTIST.Newt had painted a cat's cradle as a symbol of the pointless games that adults teach children, ascribing meaning to them when there is none.

Castle took it a step further when he acknowledged that even making commentary on the meaninglessness of these activities was a waste of time, because the world does not learn or benefit from experience.
