Krystal D’Costa selects interesting and notable ResearchBlogging.org posts in the social sciences, including anthropology, research, and philosophy. She blogs about anthropology, technology, and urban life at Anthropology in Practice.
This week in the social sciences:
- Lorna Powell of Elements reports that music lovers may be genetically inclined to this disposition.
- At Genealogy of Religion Chris Campbell tackles the argument that religion is a group level adaptation leading to sustainable large groups. Chris suggests a better understanding of kinship may be helpful in this discussion.
- Brian Switek of Dinosaur Tracking traces the rise and fall of Brontosaurus in popular imagination.
I’ll be back next Thursday with more selections from the social sciences!
