Worse, the polarisation between different theoretical approaches is often, and most unfortunately, reflected in an artificial opposition between the household and the house. Much of the relevant literature in the I980s, when household first appeared in archaeology, and the I990S can be summarised in two main trends. On the one side are the processual approaches, more typically associated with the household, the notions of 'space' and 'activity area', the house as a material correlate of the household, and the household unit as primarily an economic corporation.
I have focused on two main points. The first is that, both as a notion and as a social reality, household must not be taken for granted; rather, it should CONCLUSION: HOUSEHOLD AS PROCESS IN THE SOCIAL SCIENCES be analysed in and of itself. The other point is that household is a dialectical process. The following chapters relate to these points closely. A detailed consideration of the relationship between household's three main analytical levels - morphology, activity, and ideology - or of the specific ways in which the household interacts with other forces within a society has been omitted here.
HOUSEHOLD REPRODUCTION Reproduction is the widest and most complex and diverse sphere of household activity, and perhaps the one that links households most directly to larger domains. It refers to "all the activities in which households recreate themselves and in the process, contribute to the reproduction of the total society" (Rapp 18 THE HOUSEHOLD IN THE SOCIAL SCIENCES 1979: 176). First, reproduction refers both to physical and social reproduction. Second, social reproduction includes two further spheres, the socialisation of the young individual or the new member and the social reproduction of the household group.
