Why Applied Memetics? The British evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins defines“memetics” as an approach to evolutionary models of cultural information transfer based on the concept of the meme. A meme consists of any idea or behavior that can pass from one person to another by learning or imitation (e.g. thoughts, ideas, theories, gestures, practices, songs, fashions, habits, etc.) Memes propagate themselves and can move through the cultural sociosphere in a manner similar to the contagious behavior of a virus.
