Does culture accelerate biological evolution?

Posted Dec 26 2009 9:30am
On the Human has an interesting target article by Mark Stoneking, Professor of evolutionary genetics at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Antrhopology, on a question at the border of the philosophy of psychology and the philosophy of biology: Does culture accelerate biological evolution or rather buffer our species from new selective pressures?

Generally, On the Human has had interesting guests (Doris, Rosenberg) with a good cast of invited commentators. Many of the topics discussed here should be of interest for the readers of Brains.
