This differentiated account of communitas offers an important corrective to reductive accounts of community, and moreover has merit in drawing attention to the creative role of community in shaping different forms of social relations. It suggests a view of community as an antistructural moment within society. For Turner, community has a symbolic character in the sense of creating powerful links between members of a society or social group. His theory stresses the binding nature of communitas. Anthony Cohen, in an COMMUNITY AND SOCIETY important book, The Symbolic Construction of Community, which owes much to Turner, offers an account of community that highlights its symbolic nature.

The symbolic construction of community is held generally to be that which is sustained in rituals and in the consciousness of boundaries. However, this is less a criticism of Cohen than of Barth (1969). Cohen (2002; see also 2000) in fact later clarifies his opposition to what he regards as the excessive relativism of Barth’s idea of boundary construction as the chief feature of community. An undeniable aspect of community is self-identity, which is likely to be non-relativistic and non-contingent, he argues (2002, p.

This question regarding the communal forms of belonging in urban society was one of the chief concerns of the early Chicago School and dominated much of American urban sociology (see Chapter 3). 9 This is one way of relativizing the false dualism of society/community and tradition/modernity. In a study of the ‘radicalness of tradition’ Craig Calhoun (1983) points to another route to conceiving the relation of tradition and community. He argues that traditional communities have been important bases of collective mobilization.
