Wilson contends that although the selfish-gene approach was accepted “until [when] Martin Nowak, Corina Tarnita, and I demonstrated that inclusive fitness theory, often egoistq kin selection theory, is both mathematically and biologically incorrect.

Experiments conducted over many years by social psychologists have revealed how swiftly and decisively people divide into groups, and then discriminate in favor of the one to which they belong.

How a scientist changed the way we think. It is the gene, the unit of heredity.

In describing genes as being “selfish”, Dawkins states unequivocally that he does not intend to imply that they are driven by any motives or willbut merely that their effects can be metaphorically and pedagogically described as if they were. Another example is the existence of segregation distorter genes that are detrimental to their host, but nonetheless propagate themselves at its expense.

Thompson goes on to suggest that the cell-environment interrelationship has much to do with reproduction and inheritance, and a focus on the gene as a form of “information [that] passes through bodies and affects them, but is not affected by them on its way through” [51] is tantamount to adoption of a form of material-informational dualism that has no explanatory value and no scientific basis.

University of California Press. However, as we shall see, there are special circumstances in which a gene can achieve its egoiista selfish goals best by fostering a limited form of altruism at the level of individual animals.
