Can different cultural lineages be traced back over time to to a single common ancestral entity, or do other kinds of historical patterns emerge? Introduction | 37 These questions can also be examined by exploring some of the interesting parallels between cultural and genetic inheritance. If human culture is an inheritance system, defined by heritable continuity, then the argument can be made that cumulative process of social learning and cultural inheritance over generations might lead to the formation of phylogenetic descent relationships among different cultural entities, just as genetic transmission does at the scale of biological macroevolution (Foley 1987; Grancolas and Pellens 2005; Lycett 2011; Mace et al.
Do they share similar kinds of interindividual and intergenerational transmission routes and community-scale stabilizing mechanisms? Some anthropologists argue not. 2). , 1997, 2001; Welsch et al. 1992; Welsch and Terrell, 1994). According to this perspective, cultural evolution is argued to be a fundamentally different kind of process than macroscale biological evolution. It has a much faster tempo due to very high rates of cultural innovation, and it also has a fundamentally different mode—horizontal transmission—that creates reticulation.
In fact, rather than arguing for the absolute dominance Introduction | 41 of either branching versus mixing processes within overall cultural evolution, a more subtle and interesting set of questions can explored if the history of one particular cultural tradition is examined in relation to number of intersecting axes (Gray et al. 2010:3924). Gray et al. (2010) therefore argue that when investigating the transmission of traits and the descent history of a single cultural tradition like language, it is more productive to ask where particular aspects of tradition are positioned along a three-dimensional continuum rather than to argue a priori for the exclusive validity of splitting processes (that can be mapped by trees) or mixing processes (that cannot).
