Family and Civilization | Throne and AltarZimmerman, an American sociologist, examines the evolution of the family during the course of Greek, Roman, and Western history. He identifies three family types:. When the state is weak, the extended family or clan is the primary social power, and the state itself is seen as a union of families rather than individuals. Rights and property belong primarily to the family itself, and its current living members see themselves as mere trustees, charged with passing along what they have received. Trustee society is naturally polytheistic, with each clan having its private gods. Greece, Rome, and the Germanic barbarians all began with the trustee family system. As the state gains power, it takes over the role of enforcing justice and tries to stamp out the private justice of the trustee family.
