Evolution and Human Culture tackles the question of whether culture transcends nature or if it is tied integrally within human nature and morality. Professor Tague's research crosses a number of inter-disciplinary fields including: the arts, humanities, cultural studies, philosophy, and biology.

The text is his sixth scholarly book and continues the research he began more than a decade ago and recently released in Making Mind: Moral Sense and Consciousness in Philosophy, Science, and Literature (Rodopi).

The Preface, Table of Contents, and chapter subheadings, as well as a link to the Brill site are available at:
