    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Culture is a uniquely human property. Although precursors to cultural practices are found in other animals, these precursors differ in kind from the conditions of human culture that have emerged through evolutionary processes. In order to illuminate the mutual dependence of biological-genetic and cultural evolution, the author investigates technology and the use of tools, as well as the way these abilities are transmitted, in order to understand what properties and abilities separate human beings from animals.

    "Die Mehrzahl der Beiträge ist also von der manchmal fanatischen Ideologisierung der Evolutionstheorie weit entfernt. Der Leser wird mit Fortschreibungen und Korrekturen bekannt gemacht, und er bekommt Material in die Hand, mit dem Einwänden gegen die Evolutionstheorie begegnet werden kann."
    Stefan Diebitz in: www.literaturkritk.de
