Conditions for memetic driving. Blok, H. J. (. . Unpublished.
abstract   bibtex   
Assuming culture is transmitted horizontally (via imitation) a model was constructed to determine the conditions under which culture can dominate genetic evolution ("get off the leash" according to Blackmore). Two requirements were found: (1) culture must compete with genes (required only for the effect to be empirically testable); and (2) Interactions between individuals must be confined to small groups or neighbourhoods. The model was tested via analysis and simulation.
