One thought on “Selection at several levels (New Scientist).

  1. Ugh. That title is miserable at several levels. (Maybe they got a physicist to write it.) Why is the gene-centred view of evolution a “doctrine”? Why ascribe it to Dawkins, instead of Hamilton, Williams, Fisher? And if we’re moving beyond the gene-centred view, why does the headline focus on genes, anyway?

    Fittingly enough, the knowledge of the headline writer seems restricted to book titles.
