The second of a two-part lecture on sociocultural materialism, a sociological revision of Marvin Harris's Cultural Materialism. Sociocultural materialism is a macro-social theory that focuses upon the origin, maintenance, and change of society. An evolutionary-ecological theory it owes much to the work not only of Harris, but also Max Weber, Gerhard Lenski, and other sociologists.
