Cultural transmission with an evolved intuitive ontology: Domain-specific cognitive tracks of inheritance

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (4):570-571 (1998)
Atran's account of cultural transmission can be further refined by considering constraints from early-developed, domain-specific intuitive ontological understanding. These suggest specific predictions about the cultural survival of “memes,” depending on the way they activate intuitive understanding. There is no general dynamic of cultural inheritance; only complex predictions for domain-specific competencies that cut across cultural domains.
