This chapter examines the eliciting of laws of social evolution during the second half of the nineteenth century. It points out that grand schemes of evolution should have solid reference points, and that reconstruction was not limited to the enthusiasts of early Germanic society. It discusses the assumptions and phraseology of the discourse's founding texts, as well as Teutonist historiography.

Keywords:   social evolution, reference points, reconstruction, early Germanic society, phraseology, founding texts, Teutonist historiography
