Nevertheless, many keda collapse, regularly making it necessary for men to realign themselves. Some form completely different keda, while the remnants of a broken keda may want to form another keda by drawing in new men.

It provides fresh evidence and argum ents for placing taste, dem and and fashion at the heart of a cultural account of the origins of occidental capitalism, and for the centrality of “things” to this ideology in Renaissance Europe (see also Goldthwaite 1983). For our purposes, the importance of Sombart’s model of the re­ lationship between luxury and early capitalism lies less in the tem poral and spatial specifics of his argum ent (which is a m atter for historians of early m odern Europe), than in the generalizability of the logic of his argum ent regarding the cultural basis of dem and for at least some kinds of commodities, those that he calls luxuries.
