The table is an object that frequently appears in our local environment in many different shapes for different purposes, yet people rarely pay any attention to it because most perceive it only as a functional object. More often than not, it is associated with food, drinks and working. In this master’s thesis titled Let's sit at the table: Relation between man and table, the author explores the origin of the table, its occurrence in the Slovenian territory, evolution as well as its past and present use. The author is interested in the phraseological meaning of the table as well as its spatial, material, ritual, magical, symbolic and social meaning. She realizes that the table, especially nowadays, is often perceived as in visible. However, the specific type of table that the author focuses on – a dining or family table - in the environment that the author observes, has been and continues to be the central social space in people's homes. The latter is also of particular interest in this research. Also, in connection with the table, many events have taken place and many rules have been enforced throughout the history, including customs and habits, some of which have survived (slightly changed) to this day. From a functional point of view, there are many types of tables that have changed over time. Some of them still have the same meaning, some have changed the meaning and kept only the name, while others are of more recent origin. In her work the author, through self-reflection, describes her and her family’s attitude towards home tables. She observes what is happening around them and describes them in biographical detail. The work thus observes the table as an object both nowadays and in the past using various sources and literature - its evolution and people’s attitude towards the table in everyday life and during festivities then and now.
