    Cognitive ethology, over-attribution of agency and focusing abilities as they relate to the origin of concepts.Carolyn A. Ristau - 2011 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 34 (3):146-147.
    Carey's superb discussion of the origin of concepts is extended into the field of cognitive ethology. I also suggest that agency may be a default mechanism, often leading to over-attribution. The problem therefore becomes one of specifying the conditions in which agency is not attributed. The significance of attentional/focusing abilities on conceptual development is also emphasized.

    The day of reckoning: Does human ultrasociality continue?Carolyn A. Ristau - 2016 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 39.
    To counter human ultrasociality, alternative communities can arise, and, unlike insects, lower echelons can unite and rebel. Examples include movements such as: “Black Lives Matter,” “Fight for $15,” “Occupy,” and the “Village Movement.” To strengthen ultrasociality, a surplus bottom echelon can be reduced: for example, by means such as imprisoning Blacks, deporting immigrants, wars, and the Holocaust. Alternatively, a new structure could be created, for example, ISIL.
