I have a question that concerns evolution, culture and Richard Dawkins. I think it a given that a VERY important human adaptation is to modify the environment to suit our needs. In this sense then, culture can have a direct effect on a biological species’ success. A leaver cultural adaptation is sustainable and therefore successful while a taker cultural adaptation is totalitarian with its relationship to its environment. I would like to know Quinn’s thoughts about cultures place in evolution? I would like to know what Quinn thinks about the ideas of Richard Dawkins and about sociobiology and Neo-Darwinism in general?
