Another frame shift: From cultural transmission to cultural co-construction

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (1):154-155 (2000)
Abstract
Laland et al.'s bidirectional model is a welcome starting point that can be enhanced by a full incorporation of systems thinking into its framework. Systems thinkers note that culture is not transmitted linearly in chunks but is co-constructed within subgroups. Niche construction, particularly among primates, should be studied primarily through the effects that social relationships have on selection pressures.
