Evolution is important but it is not simple: Defining cultural traits and incorporating complex evolutionary theory
Graduate studies at Western
Behavioral and Brain Sciences 29 (4):354-355 (2006)
|Abstract||Examining homology in biological and cultural evolution is of great importance in investigations of humanity. The proposal presented in the target article retains substantial methodological weaknesses in the identification and use of “cultural traits.” However, with refined toolkits and the incorporation of recent advances in evolutionary theory, this overall endeavor can result in substantial payoffs for biological and social scientists.
