Full text: Semantics of ownership

(1980) noted that an anthropological survey of property and 
.wnership behaviors was recommended 30 years ago, but has 
yet to be done. The two other components of Rohner's (1975) 
universalist approach would involve experimental cognitive 
studies and field research of selected communities. In 
further studies, it would probably be more helpful to focus 
on the more atypical and perhaps deviant examples of 
ownership in order to examine the boundary conditions at 
which the redundancies of cognitive rules would be 
minimized. The topic of ownership is both basic and 
complex. Further research might help identify the important 
components of the concept and how they relate to each other. 
Perhaps eventually, the internal semantic. structure of the 
concept of ownership can be sufficiently understood that 
situational and cross-cultural variations can be explained 
and disputes moderated.
