Common Equals

Author: writtencasey

I am fascinated by the scientific endeavor and I read about or engage with those processes as much as possible. I am a compulsive reader and writer. With a background in anthropology and as an arm-chair/backyard scientist, I hope to improve my writing skills and learn about any areas of weakness or misunderstanding in my analytic skills. I am excited to share. Thank you for spending time here. Please reach out if you are so inclined. I'd be excited to hear from you.

  1. ‘common’ is also an English word denoting an area of open land available for public use. These days it is commonly used to describe any wild, open space (generally in the vicinity of a village or town). Beyond this, the modern day usage, means little more. However, in medieval times, if one needed provision – stone to build with or wood or peat for heat, or food – to the common one was entitled – to scavenge. An area for the common man.

    1. Great Scott! and good call! That sense escaped me entirely. The ‘tragedy of the commons’ was used as an explanatory apparatus for the research I and other students did in Ghana. This chick Amanda used it in her contribution. I remember thinking it was some good word. So good I forgot it entirely.

      Also, couldn’t help but hear The Village Green Preservation Society in my head as I read your remarks. Thanks again.
