“Culture is (mostly) information stored in human brains, and gets transmitted from brain to brain by way of a variety of social learning processes.”
Peter J. Richerson, Not by Genes Alone: How Culture Transformed Human Evolution

“First, people may vary because they inherited different genes from their parents. Second, genetically similar individuals may differ because they have lived in different environments.5 Finally, people may differ because they have acquired different beliefs, values, and skills”
Peter J. Richerson, Not by Genes Alone: How Culture Transformed Human Evolution

“We divide the evolving system into two parts. One is the "inertial" part-the processes that tend to keep the population the same from one time period to the next.”
Peter J. Richerson, Not by Genes Alone: How Culture Transformed Human Evolution
