And again, understandably for the time in which he was writing Ariès, like Elias, does not go into any depth on the schooling of girls – they are essentially dismissed in a couple of sentences – nor that while boys were being exhorted to exercise, girls were increasingly restricted in their physical pursuits.

They are hierarchical. Custom, by contrast, is inclusive. There is much to value in Elias’s work and I think Shilling’s three-point précis still stands as the best encapsulation of his method. Manners work as a means of socialisation, bringing us into society. Manners foster the process of rationalisation, leading us to rationalise ourselves, our behaviour, to quantify and commercially value our actions and behaviours. Manners instil individualisation by which we internalise order and become self-regulating individuals.

Or, to put it more precisely: bourgeois people were influenced by the behaviour of courtly people and vice versa’ (93–4).
