  2. Le roti et le bouilli: levi-strauss' theory of cannibalismShankman, Paul - American Anthropologist, 1969 - 2 Hypotheses

    This article empirically examines Levi-Strauss’ (1966) theory on cannibalism, that “an analysis of cooking [and by extension cannibalism] as a language will reveal certain structural oppositions in society” (54). Theoretical and methodological weaknesses indicate cooking may not be analogous to language and therefore linguistic theory is not applicable for the analysis of cannibalism.

  5. Birth order in cross-cultural perspectiveRosenblatt, Paul C. - Developmental Psychology, 1974 - 5 Hypotheses

    This study examines the consequences of birth order; results suggest that the firstborn child is more likely to have social authority as they grow older (they have siblings’ respect, they control property or head kin groups, etc.). The authors suggest that this authority may be legitimated by extra attention firstborns receive though elaborate birth ceremonies and teknonymy.

  10. A cross-cultural study of responses to childlessnessRosenblatt, Paul C. - Cross-Cultural Research, 1973 - 2 Hypotheses

    This study investigates responses to childlessness in a cross-cultural sample. Solutions to childlessness appear universal, and magico-religious-ethnomedical solutions seem the most likely to be tried first. Empirical analysis also shows that women are blamed for childlessness more often than men, which the authors suggest could be due to women’s lower status.
