Deontic Ecology, Cultural Traditions, and Social Systems

Deontic Ecology, Cultural Traditions, and Social Systems

(p.85) 4 Deontic Ecology, Cultural Traditions, and Social Systems

A. Martin Byers

University Press of Florida

This chapter deals with the types of social systems that would occupy a world that people might experience as immanently sacred. It specifically gives a theoretical explanation of the type of social system articulation that would be consistent with the outline of deontic ecology and the integrated notion of cultural traditions. This synthesis is of central importance because it forms the foundation of the critical assessment of the hierarchical monistic modular polity and heterarchical polyistic locale-centric accounts of Cahokia and the American Bottom archaeological record. This also correlates the proprietorial domain and custodial domain with transcendentalist and immanentist cosmologies, respectively. The chapter begins by exploring the differential settlement and subsistence pattern articulations. Bifurcated and integrated settlement articulation modes are covered. The chapter also shows the bifurcated Nyakyusa community settlement.

Keywords:   social systems, deontic ecology, cultural traditions, Cahokia, American Bottom, differential settlement, subsistence pattern, settlement articulation modes, Nyakyusa community
