The Science of Culture


The Science of Culture

Harris, Marvin (1979). Cultural Materialism: The Struggle for a Science of Culture. New York, NY: Vintage Books.

This book is a complicated and academic read with profound implications for the understanding of what drives the constant changes in cultures: The changes that we call evolution. Harris has written numerous books that are essential to our understanding of what has happened, what is now happening, and what may be happening to America in the near future.

I will discuss Harris’ pertinent concepts and observations as they become relevant to my own writings in my Boiling the American Frog material.
