Краткое описание

The Genial Gene: Deconstructing Darwinian Selfishness.

Are selfishness and individuality—rather than kindness and cooperation—basic to biological nature? Does a "selfish gene" create universal sexual conflict? Joan Roughgarden forcefully rejects these and other ideas that have come to dominate the study of animal evolution. Building on her pathbreaking book Evolution's Rainbow, in which she challenged accepted wisdom about gender identity and sexual orientation, Roughgarden upends the notion of the selfish gene and the theory of sexual selection and develops a compelling alternative theory called "social selection." This scientifically rigorous, model-based challenge to a widely held tenet of neo-Darwinian theory emphasizes cooperation, elucidates the factors that contribute to evolutionary success in a gene pool or animal social system, and demonstrates that to identify Darwinism with selfishness and individuality misrepresents the facts of life as we now know them."Roughgarden's new theory is likely to end up an important extension to existing thought."—New Scientist"This may be the most important book, philosophically speaking, on evolutionary theory in a decade. If Roughgarden is right, males and females evolved as allies, not enemies, and evolutionary theory needs a rethink because competition evolves in a cooperative world, not the other way around."—James Griesemer
