概要 The way in which we investigate the origin of something is largely determined by the way we intend to understand it. In the case of the origin of agriculture, the situation is further complicated by t...he tone of the investigation, which is not only determined by how we define and understand the set of human activities characterised and described as agriculture but also influenced by the way in which we define and understand those other beginnings we believe were causally linked to the development of agriculture, that are, the development of complexity, the beginning and spread of language and ethnic groups, and so on. The investigation of the beginning of agriculture in Japan offers us some good cases which show that the uncritical coupling of agriculture with those beginnings not only are erroneous but also hinder the development of nuanced approaches to human-plant/animal interactions and their impact on human society. This paper illustrates those problems by studying Jomon food procurement activities and proposes a way to overcome the problems by introducing the concept of the spatio-temporal organisation of social life and by linking hunting, gathering and farming practices to the spatio-temporal organisations of Jomon and Yayoi social life.続きを見る
