From the Publisher"Distinguished psychologists wrestle 'culture' away from the greedy grip of interpretive anthropologists and ask their own questions: What kind of evolved mind was needed to create and transmit culture? What impact does that transmitted culture exert on our evolved minds?"—Anne Campbell, Professor of Psychology, Durham University, UK
"I had long thought that the topic of function in biology was exhausted. *Organisms and Artifacts*, Tim Lewens' splendid new book, shows that I was quite wrong. Lewens unites a deep understanding of biology with a keen nose for a philosophical problem, and he has produced a work that is insightful and (just as important) highly interesting. This book will give an old problem really new life, and must be the starting point for all future discussion."—Michael Ruse, Lucyle T.
