Abstract

Space and time both play a major role in the evolution of traditions. While it is known that processes at different scales guide the evolution of culture, it is not yet clear which structural factors promote the emergence and persistence of traditions. This paper argues that the principle of least effort is among the factors that foster traditions, but the principle needs to be accompanied by other local processes. The theoretical discussion is supplemented by an agent-based simulation, which illustrates some of these factors and allows to study their interaction.
