Evolution as Practice

In light of the recent developments in using a Generalized Darwinist approach to study a wide range of phenomena from socio-cultural and technological change, to multi-level co-evolutionary processes within groups, organizations and societies, one might question whether the evolutionary framework is purely an academic tool to be used to study the social world around us. If we argue that knowledge evolves through the mechanisms of variation-selection-retention, and that process has shaped the evolution of cultures, technologies, language and societies since the dawn of civilisation, then perhaps we can develop this language of evolution as a tool for practice. In this manner, as employees, co-workers, managers and members of societies, we can learn to evolve.
