Relationship to other areas?[edit]

As a nonspecialist, this strikes me as very similar to sociobiology, so it would be useful to have some discussion (assuming sources for it exist) on the similarities and differences. In addition, it seems like there are relationships to a number of debates in linguistics, but generalized to all of culture (rather than only language). The claim that there are universal innate structures from which culture arises, for example, sounds like a generalization of Chomskyan universal grammar, while the evolutionary-neuroscience aspects seem to be related to cognitive linguistics. But again I'm not an expert here. --Delirium 00:37, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

POV Material[edit]

Much of the material is quoted from which advocates the approach. While this is perfectly legitimate as a source for characterizing the movement's goals and ideas, it also contains POV material, such as an interpretation of Anti-Introspectionist views in psychology that involves claims of underly religious motivations. Such a claim should be supported by references to an historian of science. I have edited the passage to reflect that this is the view of the movement's supporters, but that may not be the best way to address this - and similar - POV material. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 05:51, 16 March 2007 (UTC).
