      Peter T. Google Scholar Rosaldo, M. Humphrey and Laidlaw in their study of the Jain puja ritual The Archetypal Actions of Ritual similarly prefer to talk about ritualization: ritual is a way of doing something — which may be more or less prominent in any action. However, there seems little doubt that theories developed by, among others, Victor Turner on liminality, lim inality, Richard Schechner on performance, Catherine Bell on ritualization, Humphrey and Laidlaw on ritual r itual commitment, Maurice Bloch on ideology, and Lindsay Jones on ritual-architectural ritual-architectural events, in casting their gaze on other aspects of ritual, r itual, have served to complicate any straightforward understanding understanding of what constitutes ritual knowledge through a greater emphasis on practice.

      Concluding Remarks My aim in this paper is twofold. Practice theory serves, some say, to reconnect the analyst with the analysand — focusing at best, on what actual people actually do. Google Scholar Copyright information. Washington, D. Boyer, P.

Magic: A Theoretical Assessment. Bourdieu, P. Arthur Deikman. Mary Patterson. A contentious claim, but if I were forced to attempt a defence, I might begin by arguing that practice theory is most amenable to a Ritual and knowledge among the Baktaman of New Guinea book approach, which I believe is valuable in the case of social phenomena as complex and multifaceted as ritual Collins Rene de Nebesky-Wojkowitz.

The degree of ritualization depends on the degree to which actions are felt to be stipulated. Ritual experts will in many cases justify their practice by pointing to its evident success, and will explain failure often in terms of error, either on their own part or more often on the part of participants: the chicken to be sacrificed was the wrong kind of chicken, it was selected by the wrong person, at the wrong time, in the wrong place; its death was executed badly, by the wrong person, and so on.

I have referred to this above both in relation to Baktaman and Quaker ritual, as the assimilation of cosmological knowledge. Hans Duerr.

Detailed accounts of participation in many other rituals tell the same story: knowledge of the codified aims and objectives of ritual are often patchy. Ritual, they suggest, is not dependent on beliefs, ideas or values but is typically defined by the commitment or acceptance of participants.

Barth's introduction to Ethnic Groups and Boundaries became his most well-known essay and "ended up among the top on the social science citation index for a number of years.
