Ritual facts, information, pictures . On the one hand, these terms have been used interchangeably to denote any noninstinctive predictable action or series of actions that cannot be justified by a . In this sense the English custom of shaking hands is a ritual, but the act of planting potatoes with a view to a harvest is not. But rationality is not easily defined.
A psychiatrist may refer to the repeated hand washing of a compulsive neurotic as a . Likewise, a high- caste Hindu is required by his religion to engage in elaborate washing procedures to ensure his personal purity and cleanliness; the rationality or otherwise of such actions is a matter of cultural viewpoint. In this case, anthropologists who distinguish between ritual cleanliness and actual cleanliness are separating two aspects of a single state rather than two separate states.
The distinction between cleanliness and dirt is itself a cultural derivation that presupposes an elaborate hierarchy of ritual values. Ritual is then usually set apart as a body of custom specifically associated with religious performance, while ceremony and custom become residual categories for the description of secular activity. Where religion is the specific concern of fully institutionalized churches, as in Europe, a religious delimitation of ritual is unambiguous and easy to apply; in the exotic societies studied by anthropologists this is not the case. Recognizing this problem, some contemporary authors have argued that ambiguity in the data may be overcome by the multiplication of analytic concepts (e. Firth 1. 95. 6, p. Gluckman 1. 96. 2, pp.
Gluckman, in particular, favors an elaborate vocabulary giving clearly distinguishable meanings to ceremony, ceremonious, ritual, ritualism, and ritualization, but the circumstances in which precision might be useful are hard to imagine. Ritual is clearly not a fact of nature but a concept, and definitions of concepts should be operational; the merits of any particular formula will depend upon how the concept is being used. In short, to understand the word ritual we must take note of the user. A clergyman would probably assume that all ritual necessarily takes place inside a church in accordance with formally established rules and rubrics; a psychiatrist may be referring to the private compulsions of individual patients; an anthropologist will probably mean . The associated terms ceremonial and customary are also used in very varied ways, even by professionals from the same discipline.

The views of Robertson Smith (1. As a former professor of divinity, he advocated the study of comparative religion. He assumed that the boundaries between what is religion and what is not religion are self- evident. Modern religion (Christianity) consists of beliefs (dogma) and practices (ritual); .

Negative (ascetic) rites are the customs that we commonly label taboo. Positive rites include . The overprecision of Durkheim. He asserts dogmatically that . In his system, magic belongs to the sphere of the profane, even though . The same set of rituals may readily be classified in other ways. Thus van Gennep (1.
New Year. In the pages of The Golden Bough (1. Belief and rite are assumed to be so closely interdependent that if evidence concerning either is available the author may confidently .
Employing similar assumptions, later writers have felt entitled to make the most sweeping reconstructions of ancient religious systems on the basis of slender archeological residues of ritual practice (Hooke 1. A more profitable development of Robertson Smith. Harrison noted that the Greek word drama is derived from dromenon (religious ritual, literally: . She attached special importance to Durkheim. Thus ritual is seen as a magical dramatization of ordinary activities, while in turn the drama is a secular recapitulation of ritual.
Although ritual is distinguished from nonritual by the presence or absence of a religious context, the details of this distinction remain imprecise. Harrison was a classical scholar who profited from the writings of anthropologists; the succeeding generation of anthropologists in turn profited from hers. Malinowski and Radcliffe- Brown introduced the concept of functionalism into British social anthropology; they were both indebted to Harrison, though both were also, and quite independently, the propagators of Durkheim.
Objects to which ritual value attaches are objects that are socially important for secular reasons. Radcliffe- Brown, however, added the proposition that the performance of ritual generates in the actors certain . In their discussions of this theme both Radcliffe- Brown and Malinowski tend to assume that economic value depends upon utility rather than scarcity, and they attempt to distinguish ritual value as something other than economic value. Radcliffe- Brown shows that the Andamanese attached . Karl Marx had a much clearer understanding of what is, after all, our common experience.
Marx observed that the value of commodities in the market is quite different from the value of the same goods considered as objects of utility. He distinguishes the extra value that goods acquire by becoming market commodities as .
This concept is closely akin to Radcliffe- Brown. Furthermore, where Radcliffe- Brown urged that ritual is to the advantage of society, Marx claimed that it is to the disadvantage of the individual producer.
The Marxist thesis is that in the activities of the secular market. A full generation later Mauss (1. Exchanges that appear to be grounded in secular, rational, utilitarian needs turn out to be compulsory acts of a ritual kind in which the objects exchanged are the vehicles of mystical power. Of the authors I have mentioned, Durkheim, Harrison, Radcliffe- Brown, and Mauss all started out with the assumption that every social action belongs unambiguously to one or the other of two readily distinguishable categories: the nonrational, mystical, nonutilitarian, and sacred or the rational, common- sense, utilitarian, and profane. Each author would clearly like to distinguish a specific category, ritual, which could refer unambiguously and exhaustively to behavior relevant to things sacred. Each author ends up by demonstrating that no such discrimination is possible. Malinowski sought to avoid this dilemma.
For him, the essential issue was that of rationality rather than religion. Those who followed Frazer in thinking of magic as .
Magic and religion both belong to a single sphere, the magico- religious; . Man needs miracles not because he is benighted through primitive stupidity, . Most people in most societies have only the haziest ideas about the distinction either between sacred and profane or between rational and nonrational; it is a scholastic illusion to suppose that human actions are everywhere ordered to accord with such discriminations. Some authors still hold that a specific category is delimited by the phrase .
Human actions can serve to do things, that is, alter the physical state of the world (as in lighting a bonfire), or they can serve to say things. In our dress, in our manners, even in our most trivial gestures we are constantly . For the most part these statements refer to human relationships and to status. The actions that .
Almost every human action that takes place in culturally defined surroundings is divisible in this way; it has a technical aspect which does something and an aesthetic, communicative aspect which says something. In those types of behavior that are labeled ritual by any of the definitions so far discussed, the aesthetic, communicative aspect is particularly prominent, but a technical aspect is never entirely absent. The devout Christian eats and drinks as part of a sacrament, but he also says grace as a preface to an ordinary meal. But it is equally a matter of .
What does ritual mean? If a ritual act be deemed to say something, how do we discover what it says? With minor variations the ritual of the Christian Mass is the same throughout Christendom, but each individual Christian will explain the performance by reference to his own sectarian doctrine. Such doctrines vary quite widely; the social scientist who seeks to understand why a particular ritual sequence possesses the content and form that he observes can expect little help from the rationalizations of the devout. But intuition is equally unreliable.
Sacrifice, in the sense of the ritual killing of an animal victim, is an institution with a world- wide distribution. How can we explain this? Why should this particular kind of rite be considered an appropriate kind of action in the situations in which it is observed? There is no lack of theory. Some argue that the victim is identified with God and then sacramentally eaten; others that the victim is a gift or a bribe to the gods; others that the victim stands in substitution for the giver of the sacrifice; others that the victim is a symbolic representation of sin; and so on.
All these explanations may be true or partly true for particular situations, but they cannot all be true at once, and none of them reach into the heart of the problem, which is, Why should the killing of an animal be endowed with sacramental quality at all? Some interpretative approaches are more clearly formulated than others and deserve special attention. Radcliffe- Brown (1. We can discover what a ritual symbol means by observing the diverse uses of that symbol in both ritual and secular contexts.
This is a powerful but by no means foolproof interpretative device. For example, the English speak of . We might then suppose that in ritual drama the person who is . Up to a point this applies. Persons of authority are raised on a dais; a suppliant kneels; an orator stands when his audience sits. But there are also situations where persons of extreme eminence sit (e. The regularities are not simple.
This should not surprise us.
