The Altruism Equation
Seven Scientists Search for the Origins of Goodness
About this Item
Princeton University Press
""The Altruism Equation" is an important book in many different ways. It is important because it tackles a significant problem--namely, the levels at which natural selection operates. It is important because it tells a history never before revealed. And it is most important because the author's analysis lets us all move forward on these issues, with new insights and tools of discovery. I recommend it very highly."--Michael Ruse, Florida State University, author of "The Evolution-Creation Struggle"
"This wonderfully written book tells the history of a conceptual revolution in evolutionary biology that fundamentally changed the way scientists think about behavior. Although I do have a slightly different perspective here and there, I enthusiastically recommend this book to everyone who wants to understand the evolutionary roots of altruism and family. This fascinating book is a page-turner for scientists and lay persons alike."--Bert Hlldobler, author (with Edward O. Wilson) of the Pulitzer Prize-winning "The Ants"
