  • Next message: Scott Chase: "Durkheim versus memetics"

    EP does NOT argue that "social life is an expression of genes." contrary to Steven Thiele who wrote:
    "Evolutionary psychology/sociobiology is basically a branch of genetics and argues that social life is an expression of genes."

    EP argues that social life is a manifestation of a series of evolutionary processes. Genes are BUT one element in such processes. To give all credit/causation to genes is as much nonsense as to give causal credit to memes.
