The Principles of Social Evolution
Clarendon Press, 1986 - 412 Seiten
Dispelling the general assumption that social institutions survive because of their sophisticated adaptive advantages, this groundbreaking work asserts that the most common customs and institutions may endure because of their very simplicity or as a result of simple human proclivity. Using religious, military, and kinship institutions to illustrate this argument, the author shows that a precise combination of these factors may lead to the emergence of new forms of social evolution.
