"In their food-collecting and primitive-hunting stage men gained their living collectively ; accordingly they also consumed collectively. When their womanfolk, having noticed the sprouting of seeds, invented primitive planting, thereby gaining a temporary ascendancy socially (in the so-called matriarchate or, more correctly, matrilinear society), collective work as a whole divided along the line of sex. B. Malinowski in his opus magnum reports that in the Trobriands males and females may have premarital sexual intercourse but never must they be seen eating together."--The Humanist - Volume 73 - Pagina 54, 1958

The Humanist is an American bi-monthly magazine published in Washington, DC. It was founded in 1941 by American Humanist Association. It covers topics in science, religion, media, technology, politics and popular culture and provides ethical critique and commentary on them. The magazine was originally published under the name of The New Humanist from 1928 to 1940 by a fellowship of American humanists based at the University of Chicago. The magazine has a small circulation, read principally by the three thousand members of the American Humanist Association.
