I suppose the whole experience is a lesson in materialism. Crusoe must learn to do without pretty much everything civilized, even in the 17th century. Alone on an island, without the comforts of home, Crusoe undergoes a religious experience. He believes God has put him on the island to atone for his sins, start fresh....So he erects a big cross, finds goat meat and valley's filled with grapes. He also finds cannibals but that's a different story. The point is that Crusoe discovers God's simple gifts and is delivered from the shackles of the world's greed and materialism.
