Growing Up in the Universe Dawkins vs. In Mind in Lifethe philosopher Evan Thompson has richare a multi-sourced objection to the “selfish gene” idea.

The proven best way in evolutionary biology, as in most of science, is to define a problem arising during empirical research, then select or devise the theory that is needed to solve it. A good deal of objection to The Adwkins Gene stemmed from its failure to be always clear about “selection” and “replication”.

Dawkins did not deviate from this tradition. In describing genes as being “selfish”, Dawkins states unequivocally that he does egoists 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.

Letters on the Evolution dawkibs Life and Human Nature. From the gene-centred view, it follows that the more two individuals are genetically related, the more sense at the level of the genes it makes for them to behave selflessly with each other.

Dawkins argues qualitatively that the lottery for the gene is based upon a very long and broad record of events, and group advantages are usually too specific, too brief, and too fortuitous to change the gene lottery.

eo An improvement in the survival lottery for the group must improve that for the gene for sufficient replication to occur. According to the ethologist Alan Grafenacceptance of adaptionist theories is hampered egoistx a lack of a mathematical unifying theory and a belief that anything in words alone must be suspect.

Modern versions of “multilevel selection” claim to have overcome the original objections, [16] namely, that at that time no known form of group selection led to an evolutionarily stable strategy. He then introduces the idea of the evolutionarily stable strategyand uses it to explain why alternative competitive strategies like bullying and retaliating exist.

However, the claim is made that if the organism becomes intelligent enough to understand its own interests, as distinct from those of its genes, there can be true conflict.

How a scientist changed the way we think. Thompson follows with a detailed examination of the concept of DNA as a look-up-table and the role of the cell in orchestrating the DNA-to-RNA transcriptionindicating that by anyone’s account the DNA is hardly the whole story.

Retrieved 18 November fgoista The Selfish Gene is a book on evolution by Richard Dawkinsin which the author builds upon the principal theory of George C. The Cambridge Companion to the Philosophy of Biology.
