Genetic Nature/Culture: Anthropology and Science beyond the Two-Culture Divide

By Alan H. Goodman; Deborah Heath et al. | Go to book overview


I wish to express my deep gratitude to the Wenner-Gren Foundation for the invitation and support to participate in this intellectually stimulating conference. I also thank all the conference participants, whose ideas and comments helped shape the revision of this manuscript, and particularly Alan Goodman for his excellent suggestions and critique of an earlier draft.
