Ray Scott Percival lectures on memes

Ray Scott Percival lectures on memes:

This is a bit on the boring side, and has a fair bit of philosophical mumbo-jumbo.

The author tries to knock down memetics and present his own "anti-materialistic" theory of cultural inheritance. This is not an approach which I am very sympathetic towards.

  1. Brilliant lecture & great format for communication .... well presented ... on a topic about which i have a great deal of agreement ... add to that ... mimesis & infant imprinting & you have a coherent theory advancing both how humans think & how we are guided in our thoughts through our socio-material culture ... if by culture we mean a non-genetic modality of transferring information across both individual & social generations
