A Darwinian Left: Politics, Evolution and Cooperation

Singer, Peter

My comments


A small gem of a text. Lucidly makes the case that Darwinian thinking can be combined with a leftist political stance. However, this requires that some cherished traditional leftist views are jettisoned, among them the idea of the perfectability of society and the idea that human nature is infinitely malleable or completely determined by the social and cultural environment.
