Geoffrey Miller
“capitalism is not “materialistic,” but “semiotic.” It concerns mainly the psychological world of signs, symbols, images, and brands,”
Geoffrey Miller, Spent: Sex, Evolution, and Consumer Behavior

“Lawrence felt dreadfully cold. There was a name for this feeling that clouded his judgement and filled him with a panicky sense of self-betrayal. And the name of that feeling was love.”
Roger Williams, The Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect

Geoffrey Miller
“our social needs for intimacy, belonging, and acceptance. Mate preferences for status can explain our esteem needs for recognition, fame, and glory. Mate preferences for intelligence, knowledge, skills, and moral virtues can explain our cognitive needs to learn, discover, and create, and our self-actualization needs to fulfill our potential (for example, to display the highest possible mate value given our genetic quality).”
Geoffrey Miller, Spent: Sex, Evolution, and Consumer Behavior

Geoffrey Miller
“The ad does not say “Buy this!”; it says, “Be assured that if you buy and display this product, others are being well trained to feel ugly and inferior in your presence, just as you feel ugly and inferior compared with this goddess.”
Geoffrey Miller, Spent: Sex, Evolution, and Consumer Behavior
