Yoga sequences on The dominant framework for the social sciences, called the Standard Social Science Model (SSSM) by psychologist Leda Cosmides and anthropologist John Tooby,54 assumes that most human behaviour, including the ways in which people think and feel, is best explained by reference to the influence of culture on human beings and that the contribution of inherited elements is minimal. The argument that they develop to reveal the deficiencies in this model is both lengthy and complex; so here I will just focus on a couple of what I consider to be salient points. The first is that in the SSSM what we might call inherited human nature is conceived in minimalist terms. Empiricist philosophers, following John Locke, described the human mind at birth as a tabula rasa, a blank slate. Through various processes of learning that slate is filled with knowledge and abilities that are provided by culture knowledge accumulated over time by the group. Cosmides and Tooby illustrate this feature of the SSSM with a quotation from the anthropologist Clifford Geertz, Our ideas, our values, our acts, even our emotions, are, like our nervous system itself, cultural products products manufactured, indeed, out of tendencies, capacities, and dispositions with which we were born, but manufactured nonetheless. 55 Geertz rejects the metaphor of the blank slate and replaces it with a modern equivalent: a general-purpose computer.
