520    Virtually all aspects of human behavior show enormous 
       variation both within and between cultural groups, 
       including material culture, social organization and 
       language. Thousands of distinct cultural groups exist: 
       about 6,000 languages are spoken today, and it is thought 
       that a far greater number of languages existed in the past
       but became extinct. Using a Darwinian approach, this book 
       seeks to explain this rich cultural variation. There are a
       number of theoretical reasons to believe that cultural 
       diversification might be tree-like, that is phylogenetic: 
       material and non-material culture is clea.
