A1: Theories of Transformation in Prehistoric and Archaic Societies


 

A1: Theories of Transformation in Prehistoric and Archaic Societies
Fig. 1. The elements of subproject A1 in interaction with other subprojects, clusters, and the key concept of the CRC.

Project A1 integrates the development of reflective methods, the identification of paradigms and the development of middle-range theories into the work of the CRC 1266. A close connection of theoretical and empirical perspectives was the focus of the project work in the first phase. In the second phase of the CRC, an extension of the research subject will increasingly put the focus on pattern recognition. By integrating both philosophical and ethnoarchaeological perspectives, new case studies and methodological approaches will be incorporated into the questions and key concepts of the project and the CRC. The focus will lie, among others, on material expressions of distinct social mechanisms and on perspectives of the application of analogies.
