What's up with the glacier reference?
"....the same way as you treat a retreating glacier then unless you attack the model of Systems Theory in general then your results were undeniably objective. In other words the problem of cultural bias no longer had any meaning, unless it was a problem with Systems Theory itself."
There are many problems with this article. And yes the retreating glacier reference is just wierd. Systems theory in archaeology had its inspriration in ecology, which attempts to look at multiple variables. A glacier is not like a complex system the same way a cultural or ecological system is. There is no "undeniable objectivity", nor is "cultural bias" not a problem, despite the utility of systems theory.SheldonLB
I own "New Perspectives in Archeology" Where in this book does Binford talk about Middle Range Theory?
Title says it all. I do not believe the citations on this page are even remotely accurate.
