Example text

Actually, the influence of philology as a model for cultural evolutionary theory was probably always much greater than biology—even after Darwin's publications. Combined with Lyell's enormous influence in geology after 1830, comparative philology provided a widely acceptable, uncontroversial model for social or cultural evolution. As we saw above, it was Mcllvaine's philology that was the direct basis for 10 Resek (1960:95). This statement is overly modest, for Mcllvaine had been to considerable pains to get Morgan to see this—as Morgan acknowledges in a letter to Joseph Henry of the Smithsonian.

It may be well to list them in summary form at this point, for all were to reappear in important theoretical contexts over many years. 1. The gens was exogamic. So important was this in Morgan's thought that it was as though the main function of the gens was to break up the ancient, primordial system of group marriage by preventing the intermarriage of brothers and sisters.
