Rituals of culture

Note: See Carey pp. 9-10 for his explanation of how communication helps to

make

(and not just represent) the social world.

Slide15

Rituals of culture

We first produce the world by symbolic work and then take up residence in the world we have produced. Alas, there is magic in our self

deceptions.

We

not only

produce

reality but we must likewise

maintain

what we have produced, for there are always new generations coming along for whom our productions are incipiently problematic and for whom reality must be regenerated and made authoritative. Reality must be

repaired

for it consistently breaks down: people get lost physically and spiritually, experiments fail, evidence counter to the representation is produced, mental derangement sets in—all threats to our models of and for reality that lead to intense repair work. Finally, we must, often with fear and regret, toss away our authoritative representations of reality and begin to build the world

anew [i.e.

transform

reality] (Carey,

p

. 13).
