Looking over some old notes, I ran across something about the Grid-Group Cultural Theory. Also known as the Cultural Theory of Risk, it originated from the studies of anthropologist Mary Douglas and political scientist Aaron Wildavsky. Two dimensions of sociality are described, each with a low and high value (or a continuum): grid measures the differentiation between people, and group measures the cohesion or social bonds between people.
In the representation shown above, this arrangement reminds me significantly of the Archic Philosophers.
Sophists for Individualist
Democritus for Fatalist
Plato for Hierarchist
Aristotle for Egalitarian
