About the Book

How does culture arise from the biology of the human brain? What does this mean for questions concerning the origins of culture, cultural conflict, cultural change, and the life development of individuals? This book presents an all-encompassing idea that answers these questions and more-an idea that involves a rethinking of how the collective brains of a population create a dynamic culture, and the part played by the individual in shaping the character of cultural life.
About the Author: Glenn Silverstone has degrees in mathematics (B.Sc.) and anthropology (B.A. Honors) from Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia. He was awarded the University's Chandra Jayawardena Memorial Prize for both second and third year anthropology. In 2000 he began a PhD in anthropology with the intention of developing a new idea concerning the relationship between biology and culture. He withdrew from the PhD, however, after eighteen months, realizing that he was not suited to fieldwork. Nevertheless, he continued to think about and explore the connection between biology and culture, and to look for a written form in which to present his new idea. Eventually he wrote, "The Biology of Culture: A Conversation".
