Abstract Two major positions have emerged in the debate about the nature of kinship. One argues that kinship can only be analyzed from the framework of the biological necessities of human reproduction. The other argues that this position is nothing more than an ethnocentric view of kinship derived from European culture & that only a broader cultural approach can provide a meaningful analysis of kinship. In this approach it is necessary to analyze kinship around the world from a perspective derived from within each different culture. Recent developments have pointed out the inadequacies of both of these positions & call for a new approach to kinship. This article suggests one possible approach that goes beyond the debate between biology & culture. It is based upon the complementarity of human social behavior.
