(p.105) Chapter 5 Selection and cultural change
Evolutionary Worlds without End

Henry Plotkin

Oxford University Press

Is it possible that cultural change could be accounted for by selection processes? This question is first considered in the light of cultures in non-humans such as songbirds and other species of ape; then specifically human culture is examined in the light of the complex cognitive processes that allow humans to enter into culture; whether the immense complexities of human culture in the form of social construcions is critically examined.

Keywords:   culture in non-humans, human culture, social constructons
