The distinguished anthropologist Meyer Fortes, a contemporary of Radzinowicz at Cambridge,5 devoted what proved to be his last publication to the topic of ‘Rules and the Emergence of Society’ (Fortes 1983). Fortes began by pointing out that ‘wherever we encounter them, … humans are invariably social, or better stated societal beings’ (p. 1); that is to say, they live in groups and societies. Emphasising also the universality of rules6 within human groups and societies, Fortes went on to make the strong claim that: The capacity and the need to have, to make, to follow and to enforce rules are of cardinal importance for human social existence … For without rules there can be neither society nor culture; and what I am arguing is that it was the emergence of the capacity to make, enforce, and, by corollary, to break rules that made human society possible.
