Laws of "cultural motion"
   
 
Through existing and experimental data, I am examining the motion of culture
through the lens of three laws or axioms. The first paper in a planned series has
already been published (American Anthropologist 12(1): 122-139, 2010). A second
paper, currently under review, makes a case for considering the laws of supply and
demand in classical economics as special cases of the laws of cultural motion.
A third that views social relations through the laws of cultural motion is in
preparation.
