implications for memetics

  • susan blackmore (a1)

the implications that steels & belpaeme's (s&b's) models have for memetics are discussed. the results demonstrate the power of memes (in this case colour words) to influence both concept formation, and the creation of innate concepts. they provide further evidence for the memetic drive hypothesis, with implications for the evolution of the human brain and for group differences in categorisation.
