Culture evolves only if there is cultural inheritance

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 29 (4):347-348 (2006)
Abstract
Mesoudi et al. argue that the current inability to identify the means by which cultural traits are acquired does not debilitate their project to draw clear parallels between cultural and biological evolution. However, I suggest that cultural phenomena may be accounted for by biological processes, unless we can identify a cultural “genotype” that carries information from person to person independently of genes.
