First published in 1973, Rules and Meanings is an anthology of works that form part of Mary Douglas'' struggle to devise an anthropological modernism conducive to her opposition to reputedly modernizing trends in contemporary society. The collection contains works by Wittgenstein, Schutz, Husserl, Hertz and other continentals. The underlying themes of the anthology are the construction of meaning, the force of hidden background assumptions, tacit conventions and the power of spatial organization to reinforce words. The work serves to complement the philosophers'' work on everyday language with the anthropologists'' theory of everyday knowledge.
