Mark Whitaker:

"It helps make sense for classifying the variety of separate details in inequalities and stratification in a particular figuration at a particular moment; and from it, it helps make sense for empirically plotting historical change in figurations: one can analyze in a figurational change the overlappings of the below via comparisons of their changes, over time, in:

1. Gender [1] Stratification between (M v. F); [2] stratification within gender (‘proper’ M v. M; ‘proper’ F v. F); [3] 3rd gender

2. Ethnicity, [1] racial projects in stratification, jurisdictionally defended as a figuration; [2] or without racial projects (ideology)

3. Sexuality,

4. Handicapped Status,

5. Age,

6. Religion,

7. Language,

8. Ideology Family/Kinship, Pol. Organization; above accretive variables can be ideological, categorical stratification as well; jobs clean/unclean; racial projects (ethnic ideological projects: open (Brazil from 1950s) or closed (formal apartheids—U.S. in many states before 1950; South Africa before 1990s; or Israeli apartheid or Koreans/burakumin in Japan, today), stratification by ‘ism’: party, nationalism ideology, internationalism ideology, localism ideology, anarchy, socialism, communism, etc; multi-dimensional

9. Materials, hegemonic materials v. other materials for same social use demoted or banned (example: oil v. electric cars; etc.)

10. Class, people with materials and people without (though class fails to always associate with other dimensions like honor or positional and jurisdictional power)

11. Violence,

12. Territory, stratification’s spatial relations; different spatial access abilities in a state or globally based on social classification

13. (H)onor (5 Kinds of Status/Prestige: economic honor to other honors) [1] Economic capital (class) [more than ownership honor: [2] distributional honor (potlatch / charity)]; [3] human capital, [4] cultural capital/habitus, [5] sexual capital

14. 3 Positions: INTRODUCING stratification/jurisdictions caused by strategic positions [trialectics]

15. 3 Jurisdictions: INTRODUCING stratification caused by jurisdictional (cultural-political) claims [the 'wrapping' around particular figurations of the above referents and how they are justified (public, private, secret/militarized, etc.)

Jurisdictions as figurations and social stratification are constructed and assembled in these 15 areas in open-ended history." (
