%A Dr. L. M. Gabora %J Behavioral and Brain Sciences %T Epigenetic and Cultural Evolution are non-Darwinian %X The argument that heritable epigenetic change plays a distinct role in evolution would be strengthened through recognition that it is what bootstrapped the origin and early evolution of life, and like behavioral and symbolic change, is non-Darwinian. The mathematics of natural selection, a population-level process, is limited to replication with negligible individual-level change, i.e. that uses a self-assembly code. %N 4 %K epigenesis, cultural evolution, Darwinian theory, natural selection, self-assembly code, origin of life, symbol use, evolution of behavior %P 371-371 %V 30 %D 2007 %L cogprints5962
