Sample text

The reason why they called them their brothers and sisters who would not be such now, was, either because they actually were such, or were undistinguishable from them by reason of the common cohabitation of their parents with each other. And so of all the other relationships of the system. 10 Since philologists had for a long time agreed that words and grammatical forms would outlive the functional conditions that had originally brought them about, Mcllvaine had proposed to Morgan that the strange-seeming classificatory kinship systems were survivals of earlier forms of marriage and family.

To Morgan, the best surviving evidence of this marriage rule was the Australian "marriage classes" (specifically the system of the Kamilaroi). The notable characteristic of the classes is that in each gener4 Morgan derived this term from the Hawaiian custom of punalua. See below. 40 TO SET THE STAGE ation there are two classes of relatives; the members of one must marry into the other but must not marry into their own. Morgan saw that this prohibited marriage between brothers and sisters and sanctioned it between cousins (actually between what we now call crosscousins).

It is easy to imagine the spur this put to Morgan, particularly since he, not McLennan, was in possession of such an enormous amount of data relating to this very subject. Morgan finally read his paper, "A Conjectural Solution to the Origin of the Classificatory System of Relationships/' before the Academy of Arts and Sciences in Boston in 1867 (published in the Academy's Proceedings in 1868). The intellectual success of this venture led to the final acceptance of Systems, with a new chapter explaining the evolution of the family via marriage rules and the effect of the successive stages on the systems of relationship nomenclature.
