A poco più di 200 anni dalla nascita di Charles Darwin, nonostante le sue teorie abbiano modificato radicalmente il modo di osservare e studiare il mondo naturale, le fila dei “nemici” di Darwin, ossia coloro che non vedono l’ora di sminuire o addirittura cancellare il suo contributo al progresso scientifico moderno, non smettono di ingrossarsi. Sempre più spesso politici, religiosi, filosofi e liberi pensatori “attaccano” la figura e il pensiero di Charles Darwin, travisando le sue teorie o applicandole ad…

The Darwin Day Lecture 2016 | How Darwinian is cultural evolution? | Thom Scott-Phillips

February 10 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Lindisfarne Room, Newcastle University,
Kings Road Centre, Newcastle, NE1 8QB United Kingdom

The suggestion that culture changes in broadly Darwinian ways goes back to Darwin himself, who suggested that his explanation of species change might also apply to language change. However the idea of studying culture in Darwinian terms fell out of favour for most of the 20th-century, after some early anthropologists misused Darwin’s ideas, for instance to defend distinctions between supposedly ‘primitive’ and ‘advanced’ cultures. The idea of cultural Darwinism was revived in the 1970s and 1980s in various forms, the…
