Dhw says that language fits in with fight for survival, " But I'm still scratching my head over how to fit in Beethoven's 9th!".
> This music is carefully selected and cultivated and enhanced to produce the emotional effect you feel from Beethoven. If it doesn't work, it isn't passed on. - If I may comment for dhw, I don't think he meant what Carl's answer addressed. The issue is if we evolved to produce Beethoven, how did that aid our survival and selection through evolution, if survival by natural selection, the Darwin approach would have to reason that Beethoven's talent was necessary for our survival. Is Beethoven just a fortunate offshoot of our obvious intellectual advancement, as Darwin's theory would be forced to suggest?
