, Bloomsbury, 1998, Page 2.)'we behave culturally because it is our nature to behave culturally, because natural selection has produced an animal that has to behave culturally,that has to invent rules, make myths, speak languages, and form men's clubs,in the same way that the hamadryas baboon has to form harems, adopt infants,and bite its wives on the neck.'(Lionel Tiger & Robin Fox,
The Imperial Animal 
,Secker & Warburg, 1972, page 20)
