Word of the day

My word of the day today (Saturday 5th April 2014) is:

“Culturgen”
In the terminology of C. J. Lumsden and E. O. Wilson: an element of behaviour or cultural artefact whose repetition or reproduction is transmissible from one generation to another and may be subject to a selective process; a cultural trait considered as a theoretical unit of cultural evolution (and thus analogous to a gene).
