Sex and Culture [PDF / EPUB] Sex and Culture In Sex and Culture 1934 the ethnologist and social anthropologist J D Unwin studied 80 primitive tribes and 6 known civilizations through 5000 years of history and found a positive correlation between In Sex and Culture the ethnologist and social anthropologist J D Unwin studied primitive tribes and known civilizations through years of history and found a positive correlation between the cultural achievement of a people and the sexual restraint they observe Sex and Culture is a work of the highest importance Aldous Huxley wrote; Unwin's conclusions which are based upon an enormous wealth of carefully sifted evidence may be summed Sex and PDF/EPUB ² up as follows All human societies are in one or another of four cultural conditions zoistic manistic deistic rationalistic Of these societies the zoistic displays the least amount of mental and social energy the rationalistic the most Investigation shows that the societies exhibiting the least amount of energy are those where pre nuptial continence is not imposed and where the opportunities for sexual indulgence after marriage are greatest The cultural condition of a society rises in exact proportion as it imposes pre nuptial and post nuptial restraints upon sexual opportunityAccording to Unwin after a nation becomes prosperous it becomes increasingly liberal with regard to sexual morality and as a result loses it cohesion its impetus and its purpose The process says the author is irreversibleThe whole of human history does not contain a single instance of a group becoming civilized unless it has been absolutely monogamous nor is there any example of a group retaining its culture after it has adopted less rigorous customs.

    This blew my mind The monotonous pattern meaning it's so predictable it's almost boring is that Any human society is free to choose either to display great energy or to enjoy sexual freedom; the evidence is that it cannot do both for than one generation He also said that a society has three generations 100 years after a sexual revolution before its collapse Western civilization had its sexual revolution recently; we are now decaying into what Unwin calls zoistic self focused and uncivilized at which point every civilization has been destroyed or taken over by one with energyI read a condensed version of this book here

    NOGLE NOTERUnwin bruger flest kræfter på 80 primitive samfund mens en håndfuld civiliserede samfund som romerne grækerne sumererne angel sakserne fylder mindreKorrelationen mellem en streng seksualmoral og kulturel tilstand i de primitive samfund virker overbevisende Årsagen forklarer Unwin med inspiration fra noget psykoanalyse hvor den ophobede seksuelle energi ledes over i samfundsmæssig expansion og produktion Den forklaring er noget spekulativ Korrelationen hos de civiliserede samfund hviler på et lille antal målepunkter så den virker også noget spekulativ men sammen med observationerne fra alle de primitive samfund virker den sandsynlig og tilsyneladende ikke tilbagevistI starten definerer Unwin den kulturelle tilstand alene med religiøse karakteristika og det er de karakteristika han observerer hos de 80 primitive kulturer the cultural condition of a society is determined by its answers to two uestions 1 What powers manifest themselves in the universe? 2 What steps are taken to maintain a right relation with those powers?Men senere bruger han det i en bredere forstand om en civilisations generelle ekspansionsevne og produktivitet Among the accomplishments of extremely energetic societies are territorial expansion conuest colonization and the foundation of a widely flung commerce All these things and their like are manifestations of what I call expansive social energy A society which displays productive social energy develops the resources of its habitat and by increasing its knowledge of the material universe bends nature to its willMen koblingen mellem det religiøse og det ekspansive og produktive synes ikke at være baseret på noget systematisk studie men mere Unwins personlige indtryk af mønsteret Enten er det ikke særligt robust eller også har jeg misset nogetGraden af seksuel begrænsning inddeles i fire kategorier fra mest restriktiv til mindre restriktiv Absolut monogami absolut polygami modificeret monogami og modificeret polygami I absolut polygami indskrænkes kvindernes seksuelle frihed maksimalt mens mændenes seksuelle frihed er mindre begrænset end i absolut monogami
