Adaptation and Cultural Diffusion.
Ormrod, Richard K.
Journal of Geography, v91 n6 p258-62 Nov-Dec 1992
Explores the role of adaptation in cultural diffusion. Explains that adaptation theory recognizes the lack of independence between innovations and their environmental settings. Discusses testing and selection, modification, motivation, and cognition. Suggests that adaptation effects are pervasive in cultural diffusion but require a broader, more holistic theory of diffusion. (DK)
