Normativity, social change, and the epistemological framing of culture

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 43 (2020)
  Copy   BIBTEX


The authors deploy an epistemic framework to represent culture and model the acquisition of cultural behavior. Yet, the framing inherits familiar problems with explaining the acquisition of norms. Such problems are conspicuous with regard to human societies where norms are ubiquitous. This creates a new difficulty for the authors in explaining change to mutually exclusive organizational structures of human life.
