 The Challenge of Human Social Behavior by Richard Alexander
Cooperative human cultural behavior that is learned and involves costly investment may be regarded as the most likely potential falsifier of the hypothesis that everything about life is somehow a consequence or a byproduct of adaptation via differential reproduction during the process of organic evolution in the environments of history.
Culture is part of the human phenotype, part of the environment within which genes must survive by reproducing, so we must at least begin with the hypothesis that cultural traits differ from other traits primarily in the sense that much of cultural change proceeds via behaviors cumulatively learned from generation to generation.
First, the human species is (and possibly always has been) composed of competing and essentially hostile groups that frequently have not only behaved toward one another in the manner of different species, but also have been able quickly to develop enormous differences in reproductive and competitive ability because of cultural innovation and its cumulative effects.

This is done through the careful use of behavioral and systems theories, and the application of research based principles of behavior, such as reinforcement, punishment, stimulus control, discrimination and generalization.
