Cecilia Heyes reviews 'Cultural Evolution'

last modified Feb 01, 2016 12:27 PM

Cecilia Heyes has reviewed 'Cultural Evolution' by Tim Lewens.

"Well-informed about both cultural evolutionary theory and the objections raised against it, Lewens plays the role of an honest broker. He uses his philosophical skills to puncture hyperbole, excise pseudo-problems, and work away at conceptual knots until it is clear where the real troubles lie. Upbeat and generous, especially to scientists, Lewens casts the view of cultural evolution that survives his analysis as eclectic and potentially fruitful.".
