3. MORGAN'S ANCIENT SOCIETY (1877) 47 After the appearance of Systems in 1871, Morgan became gradually immersed in the writing of Ancient Society and was able to think out more completely a scheme of evolution and attempt to present it as a coherent whole. He was impressed with Darwin's natural history work (and, as was noted earlier, had visited him to pay his earnest respects), but he was not really a Darwinist with respect to human social evolution. Today, we accord to Darwin and thus "Darwinism" the theory of natural selection and adaptation.

To most people, including Morgan, our own system, being descriptive, seemed natural, that is, more accurate of genealogy and needing no explanation. But in his talk, Morgan briefly ventured an explanation of how the classificatory system changed to the descriptive. This was a logical requirement of the evolutionary scheme but one which only Morgan recognized. If all of mankind once lived in the tribal state and failed, because of the classificatory system, to distinguish their sons from nephews, and nephews from strangers, "it will be sufficient to remark, that, if such were the fact, the rights of property and the succession to estates would have insured its overthrow.

P. " Saying that the class terms "summarize kinship" rather than conflict with it suggests that we take another look at the four "marriage classes" of the Kamilaroi. The simplest as well as the most basic universal components of status and role in family life are generation and sex, as between mother, father, son and daughter, and brother and sister. Those ingredients of the nuclear family are matched by one more: affinal statuses as created by marriage. If the four-class system is in fact a "summary," or the Australian family writ large, then generation (parents' and children's) and affinal status are the two intersecting criteria that form the four compartments (sex being designated by the affixes).
