Morgan, in particular, acknowledged that certain forms of society and culture could not possibly have arisen before others.

Summary[ edit ] The authors argue that human beings evolved in egalitarian hunter-gatherer bands in which sexual interaction was a shared resource, much like food, child care, and group defense. We will approach each theoretical perspective or proposition on three levels: 1 in terms of its analytical or explanatory power for understanding human behavior and the social world; 2 in the context of the social and historical circumstances in which they were produced; and 3 as contributions to ongoing dialogues and debate. American "cultural anthropologists" focused on the ways people expressed their view of themselves and their world, especially in symbolic forms such as art and myths.
