Dual inheritance theory (DIT), also known as gene–culture coevolution or biocultural evolution, was developed in the s through early s to explain how human behavior is a product of two different and interacting evolutionary processes: genetic evolution and cultural and culture continually interact in a feedback loop, changes in genes can .
4. Social constructions. Human culture is a natural phenomenon, but a natural phenomenon that has the curious property which Searle , in his masterful analysis, labelled the characteristic of being able to induce a kind of ‘metaphysical giddiness’.The source of that giddiness lies in the capacity for this aspect of human culture to generate an endless array of Cited by: 8.

This volume tackles questions of cultural evolution empirically and quantitatively, using a range of case studies from Africa, the Pacific, Europe, Asia and America. Powerful theoretical tools developed in evolutionary biology are used to test detailed hypotheses about historical patterns and adaptive functions in cultural evolution.5/5(1).
Distin shows how the concept of cultural evolution outlined in this book can help us to understand the complexity and diversity of human culture, relating her theory to a range of subjects including economics, linguistics, and developmental biology/5(2). Despite an entire industry devoted to applying diversity principles to change corporate culture, diversity remains an ambiguous and misunderstood concept to most that can The Evolution of Cultural Diversity book benefit from continued frank and thoughtful dialogue.

Recently, there has also been increased interest in the social sciences in how Darwinian theory can explain human culture. Covering a wide range of topics, including fads, public policy, the spread of religion, and herd. Evolution - Evolution - The cultural impact of evolutionary theory: The theory of evolution makes statements about three different, though related, issues: (1) the fact of evolution—that is, that organisms are related by common descent; (2) evolutionary history—the details of when lineages split from one another and of the changes that occurred in each lineage; and (3) the.
'Cultural Evolution is an intellectual tour-de-force. Drawing on insights from years of research in societies representing ninety percent of the world’s population, the renowned political scientist Ronald F. Inglehart traces the most important changes taking place across the globe - the shift from Materialist to Postmaterialist by: The paradox of low biological diversity and high cultural diversity among humans can be used to provide us with a basis for considering the origins of community-based cultural diversity.
A variety of genomic markers place the demographic origin of H. sapiens towards the end of the Middle Pleistocene, somewhere between and kyr ago [ 20 ].Cited by: Virtually all aspects of human behaviour show enormous variation both within and between cultural groups, including material culture, social organization and language.
Thousands of distinct cultural groups exist: about 6, languages are spoken today, and it is thought that a far greater number of languages existed in the past but became extinct.

This book is a comprehensive and detailed account of how genetic and cultural evolution can interact, such as the coevolution of lactose tolerance alleles and dairy farming, or yam cultivation and sickle cell anemia.
Henrich, J., and R. McElreath. The evolution of cultural evolution. Evolutionary Anthropology – Human cultural traits—behaviors, ideas, and technologies that can be learned from other individuals—can exhibit complex patterns of transmission and evolution, and researchers have developed theoretical models, both verbal and mathematical, to facilitate our understanding of these patterns.
Many of the first quantitative models of cultural evolution were modified from Cited by: Using a Darwinian approach, this book seeks to explain this rich cultural variation. There are a number of theoretical reasons to believe that cultural diversification might be tree-like, that is phylogenetic: material and non-material culture is clearly inherited by descendants, there is descent with modification, and languages appear to be Price: $ Cultural evolution - Cultural evolution - Multilinear theory: A widespread reaction against sweeping generalizations about culture began in the late 19th century in the United States and somewhat later in Europe.
Theories and descriptions of hypothetical stages of evolution generally, and of unilinear evolution specifically, were heavily criticized as racist; instead of presuming that some. Using a Darwinian approach, this book seeks to explain this rich cultural variation.

If we define culture as "information capable of affecting individuals' behavior that they acquire from other members of their species through teaching, imitation and other forms of social transmission,” cultural evolution is fundamentally just the change of culture over time.
Along the way, the book reveals how new insights arise from looking at culture from an evolutionary angle. Cultural Evolution provides a thought-provoking argument that Darwinian evolutionary theory can both unify different branches of inquiry and enhance understanding of human behavior.
