expansion[edit]

Shouldn't the entry for Westermarck be larger than that of a one episode villian on Doctor Who? or the entry for "Little Mac" of Nintendo's "Punch Out"? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 41.249.89.247 (talk) 15:10, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

I definitely think that Toy Story's "Jessie, the Yodeling Cowgirl" and Iron Man's enemy, Whiplash, and their contribution to civilizations, is what warrants the enormous pages devoted to them, but I am concerned this page about Westermarck is too long.

I found this in an actual encyclopedia, I don't know if it can be used, though. "Finnish sociologist, philosopher, and anthropologist who denied the widely held view that early humans had lived in a state of promiscuity and instead theorized that the original form of human sexual attachment had been monogamy. He asserted that primitive marriage was rooted in the needs of the nuclear family, which he considered to be the fundamental and universal unit of society." —Preceding unsigned comment added by 41.248.118.240 (talk) 20:39, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

By the way, a site that could help expand this entry has this at the bottom: http://www.kirjasto.sci.fi/ewester.htm "May be used for non-commercial purposes. The author must be mentioned. The text may not be altered in any way (e.g. by translation). Click on the logo above for information." So, is that a 'go' to expand this wiki-entry? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 41.248.118.240 (talk) 20:42, 14 May 2010 (UTC)
