Regles Negatives Et Evolution





I propose to treat the distinction between systems of rules and social orders made by Hayek in the context of cultural evolution as similar to the biological distinction between genotype and phenotype. This methodological choice allows one to answer two fundamental questions: the place of group selection in Hayek's model and the Lamarckian character or not of cultural evolution. It also allows one to solve two central problems of Darwinian models of social evolution linked to the transmission of cultural contents.
