Re: New diavloggers we'd like to see

Re: New diavloggers we'd like to see

Re: New diavloggers we'd like to see

no I am not saying that. Genetic explanations that do not take environmental influences into account are almost always going to be flawed. Environmental/cultural explanations that do not take...

Re: New diavloggers we'd like to see

OK, but the larger message of the book was that culture was the catalyst. He may have gotten wrong the mechanism by which the cultural change was produced, but do you object to his thesis that...

I don't blame Dawkins. I blame people. As much as you hate the idea of genetic determinism, I hate the idea of cultural determinism. Being a female, I have a less sanguine view of culture and...
