In this paper an approach to evolutionary learning based upon principles of cultural evolution is developed. In this dual-inheritance system, there is an evolving population of trait sequences as well as an associated belief space. The belief space is derived from the behavior of individuals and is used to actively constrain the traits acquired in future populations. Shifts in the representation of the belief space and the population are supported. The approach is used to solve several versions of the BOOLE problem; F6, F11, and F20. The results are compared with other approaches and the advantages of a dual inheritance approach using cultural algorithms is discussed.
