Editor's Selections: Music, Kinship, and the Mighty Brontosaurus


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!
