Cultural Evolution Tim Lewens aims to understand what it means to take an evolutionary approach to cultural change, and why it is that this approach is often treated with suspicion Convinced of the exceptional power of natural selection, many thinkers typically working in biological anthropology, cognitive psychology, and evolutionary biology have suggested it should be freed from the confines of biology, and applied to cultural change in humans and other animals At the same time, others typically with backgrounds in disciplines like social anthropology and history have been just as vocal in dismissing the evolutionary approach to culture What drives these disputes over Darwinism in the social sciences While making a case for the value of evolutionary thinking for students of culture, Lewens shows why the concerns of sceptics should not dismissed as mere prejudice, confusion, or ignorance Indeed, confusions about what evolutionary approaches entail are propagated by their proponents, as well as by their detractors By taking seriously the problems faced by these approaches to culture, Lewens shows how such approaches can be better formulated, where their most significant limitations lie, and how the tools of cultural evolutionary thinking might become widely accepted.

    B sicamente, creo que este autor hace una aproximaci n un tanto pobre y parcial a las varias propuestas que existen acerca de la evoluci n de la cultura desde un punto de vista evolucionista o darwinista seg n otros autores Critica temas como el uso de modelos de una manera muy parcial, analizando solo el uso que hacen dos o tres autores, y no la gran diversidad de personas que trabajan en este campo, o critica as mismo que los evolucionistas culturales no se interesa...

    A wonderfully clear assessment of the prospects of cultural evolutionary theory, ultimately arguing for the utility of population based models.
