A. Dual. Inheritance. Joanna Hershon Autumn 1962: Ed Cantowitz and Hugh
Shipley meet in their final year at Harvard. Ed is far removed from Hugh's
privileged upbringing as a Boston Brahmin, yet his drive and ambition outpace
Hugh's ambivalence about his own life. These two young men form an unlikely
friendship, bolstered by a fierce shared desire to transcend their circumstances.
But in just a few short years, not only do their paths diverge—one rising on Wall
Street, the other ...

370, footnote. See MORSINK (1982) ch. III for an analysis of A.'s argument
against pangenesis; HENRY (2006a) notes the plant example. LXXIII Dual-
inheritance theory. This term is a small novelty of mine; it emerges from a solution
to a problem in A.'s theory of inheritance. In A.'s standard theory of reproductive
hylomorphism males supply the form and females the matter, see HENRY (2006b
), but GA IV allows that maternal matter (the menses) can also encode hereditary

a. Dual. Inheritance. System. o. harles Darwin once wrote that his book, On the
Origin of Species, had two principal goals, "firstly, to shew that species had not
been separately created, and secondly, that natural selection had been the chief
agent of change." (198 1 [1871] i: 152). In the preceding chapters, I have
attempted to propose a theory of cultural evolution — that is, of descent with
modification in the shared conceptual systems we call "cultures" — that is parallel
in many ways to ...

Here, the consequences of niche construction are "transmitted" from one
generation to the next through the external environment, in the form of parentally
modified natural selection pressures for their offspring. This transmittal is
sufficient to establish a second inheritance system in evolution, an ecological
inheritance (Figure 2). Offspring now receive a dual inheritance from their parents
, their genotypes, and some parentally- modified sources of natural selection as a
consequence of ...

The real problem is that sociobiology reverts to a causal view of cultural success.
Persons succeed to some extent because of their minds, and yet, deeper down,
almost despite their minds, because their minds are not free for objective, rational
, critical evaluation but are prejudiced by their genes. (2) A Dual Inheritance
System Another account finds a "dual inheritance system" (Boyd and Rich- erson
1985; Richerson and Boyd 1989), whereby humans have some dispositions to
which ...

Although Burton originally saw what he refers to as basic human needs as
genetically based, in a response to Avruch and Black (Burton and Sandole 1987:
97), he modified his position somewhat by accepting the thesis of Boyd and
Richerson (1986) that humans have a “dual inheritance system,” one part cultural
and the other genetic. What is important “is that universal patterns of behavior
exist” (Burton and Sandole 1987:97). Burton still “does not answer the question of
where needs ...
