The third section is missing, how is this free?

After selecting a chapter at randon I could only read one and a half pages
before encountering a serious error: Polar bears are arctic, not temperate.
And temperate is not the same as template.

Busy.  And the memetics list doesn't look like it will come back.

Just sent this to another list.


I became involved with evolutionary psychology some years ago--for reasons
akin to a cancer patient learning a lot about cancer.

As an eventual result I wrote a paper, "Evolutionary Psychology, Memes and
the Origin of War"

It is in print, Mankind Quarterly, Summer 2006 and a slightly longer
version is on the web.

http://www.kuro5hin.org/story/2006/4/17/194059/296

While I make the claim that ideologies (that is memes, particularly
xenophobic memes) are part of the path to war (or terror), they are not
ultimately causal.  That role goes to the environment, or more precisely,
to a human group's perception of the environment (ecosystem/economic)
future prospects.

The claim is that if the conditions are proper for war or related social
disruptions such as terrorism or riots, some xenophobic ideology will
emerge from an evolutionary kind of memetic competition in the population.

Of course, that goes double for a population that has been attacked (or
thinks they have).

The first rule for using evolutionary psychology as a "thinking aid" is
that all human behavioral traits are either the direct result of selection
for that trait or a side effect of something else that was directly selected.

The second rule is that the considerable majority of selection for
behavioral traits happened in the long period when our ancestors lived as
hunter gatherers.

I highly recommend this paper, "The Human Motivational Complex:
Evolutionary Theory And The Causes Of Hunter-Gatherer Fighting" by Azar Gat
for background.
