    Thus, persons may be expected to marry outside their totem clan s or other groups, in addition to outside closer blood relatives. In this chapter, Freud explains taboo as something, which is prevented by society without reason. In essence, what happens is that these societies feel ambivalent towards their original father figure. If this assumption is to be held, it prompts further questions: i how much can we attribute to psychical continuity in the sequence of generations? Lang and argued that the origin of the names had been forgotten, however the fact that amongst primitive men, a name is a man's principal component of his soul, equates to its importance as if a blood relationship, and thus automatically involves the totemic ordinances.

    Of those theories that propose that exogamy is independent of totemism, McLennan proposes that exogamy arose from the earlier practice of marriage by capture. Becoming a Father Charlie Lewis Snippet view — The Golden Bough is regarded by many today as a much-loved but antiquated relic, but, by making anthropological data and knowledge academically respectable, Frazer made modern comparative anthropology possible. Namely that he depends on the assumption of the existence of the collective mind, in which mental processes occur as they do in the individual - without which assumption social psychology in general cannot exist. Westermarck has explained the horror of incest on the ground that 'there is an innate aversion to sexual intercourse between persons living closely together from early youth Primitive men, on the other hand, are uninhibited, thought passes directly into action - with them it is rather the deed that is a substitute for the thought.

    In essence, they are unable to repress the primitive incestuous feelings. Exploring the interconnections between myth and ritual in how and whom we may marry-as group marriage gave way to individual marriage-questions about religion and social structure became intertwined. Furthermore, Freud's findings from psychoanalysis, that the earliest sexual excitations of youthful human beings are invariably incestuous in character, make Westermarck's ideas seem less likely. Although much progress has been made in various advanced societies around the world, there still exist many hurdles in seeing his vision become a reality.

Totemism And Exogamy book

Men were obliged to seek wives from other groups, including marriage by capture, and exogamy developed as a cultural custom.

The relationship existing between persons of the same crest is nearer than that between members of the same tribe Those that propose that exogamy is an inevitable consequence of the basic principles of totemism, are Durkheim, and Andrew Lang, who argue that the prohibition against women of the same clan might operate even without any blood taboo.

Or does it simply reflect the transition through the schools of thought from animism, to religion to scientific? Essentially, this chapter tries to explain the origin of religions. However, Freud suggests that even advanced societies must have at one time passed through this stage.

From a genetic point of view, aversion to breeding with close relatives results in fewer congenital diseases. For example - neurotics are inhibited in their ritual actions whereas primitive people are uninhibited in their equivalent rituals - so their purposes might not be as analogous as their similar operatives suggests.
