ISBN:
0521606276

Kate Distin's highly readable and accessible book presents for the first time a fully developed and workable concept of cultural DNA. She argues that culture develops both through mimetic evolution and human creativity, and that memetic evolution is perfectly compatible with the view of humans as conscious and intelligent.This book should find a wide readership amongts philosophers, psychologists, sociologists, and will also interest many non-academic readers.
