In both the Highlands and the Amazon, hospitality is found at one pole of a continuum at the other end of which is warfare. Feasts can sometimes turn into fights. Acceptance and incorporation may rapidly become transformed into hostility, rejection, and even expulsion. However, as Brown (1980) has argued in the case of feasting and warfare in New Guinea, such apparent contradiction should not surprise us, for, to put it simply, both hospitality and hostility imply the possibility of the other. None the less (we may add, en pussant) this contradiction itself reveals a continuity, for hospitality and hostility have in common the fact that both are expressions of the existence, rather than the negation, of a relationship.

As to its roots in nature, Cornwallis observed that ’the antients called our kindess to strangers . . humanity . . 10). He identified one of the scriptural origins in the Book of Exodus (22: 21): Thou shalt do no injury to strangers’, an injunction which he explained in relation to the slavery of the ancient Hebrews in the land of Egypt. This was an experience, he added, which gave rise to Jewish attachment to the value of hospitality, as they would not do to others what was done to themselves.

A person who regularly behaves hospitably is said to be a hospitable person; he or she will also be a good host, so far as attentiveness is concerned, but may lack the skill which would make him or her a good host without qualification.

A firm that runs a chain of hotels might describe itself as in the hospitality business, and perhaps even as being hosts - certainly as ‘hosting‘ events.
