Behavioral and Brain Sciences. The Selfish Gene is a book on evolution by Richard Dawkinsin which the author builds upon the principal theory of George C. A lineage is expected to evolve to maximise its inclusive fitness —the number of copies of riichard genes passed on globally rather than by a particular individual.

The Selfish Gene – Wikipedia

Inthe ecologist Arthur Cainone of Dawkins’s tutors at Oxford in the s, called wl a “young man’s book” which Dawkins points out was a deliberate quote of a commentator on the New College, Oxford [a] philosopher A. The claim is made that these “selfish” actions of genes lead to unselfish actions le organisms.

He considers the origin of life with the arrival of molecules able to replicate themselves. This helps the gene spread, and also helps the organism.

Annual Review of Ecology and Systematics. The Selfish Gene was first published by Oxford University Press in in eleven chapters with a preface by the author and a foreword by Robert Trivers.

For a more modern and technical argument, see Foster, Kevin R.

El Gen Egoista / the Selfish Gene

This view from is still espoused today, [45] [46] and conflicts with Dawkins’ view of “the gene as a form of “information [that] passes through bodies and affects them, but is not affected by them on its way through””. Other authors say Dawkins has failed to make some critical distinctions, in egoist, the difference between group selection for group advantage and group selection conveying individual advantage.


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.

Dawkins describes God as an old idea which probably arose many times, and which has sufficient psychological appeal to survive effectively in the meme pool. Williams ‘s book Adaptation and Natural Selectionwhich argued that altruism is not based upon group benefit per se[3] but is a result of selection that occurs “at the level of the gene mediated by the phenotype ” [4] and any selection at the eichard level occurred only under rare circumstances.

Moreover, genetic rearrangement occurs The Structure of Evolutionary Theory. He then introduces the idea of the evolutionarily stable strategyand uses it to explain why alternative competitive strategies like bullying and retaliating exist. Dawkins noted that he had been “flattered by the comparison, [but] knew that Ayer had recanted much of his first book and [he] could hardly miss Cain’s pointed implication that [he] should, in the fullness of time, do the same.

In fact, Dawkins has proposed that it is at the level of the extended phenotype: Williams ‘s Adaptation and Natural Selection Stephen Jay Gould finds Dawkins’ position tries to have it both ways: The claim still is made by some that it would take only a single individual with a tendency towards more selfish behaviour to undermine a population otherwise filled only with the gene for altruism towards non-kin. An improvement in the survival lottery for the group must improve that for the gene for sufficient replication to occur.

Ayer ‘s Language, Truth, and Logic The Selfish Gene further popularised sociobiology in Japan after its translation in Survival of the Fittest. Dawkins begins by discussing the altruism that people display, indicating that he will argue it is explained by gene selfishness, and attacking richardd selection as an explanation.

Although Dawkins agrees that groups can assist survival, they rank as a “vehicle” for survival only if the group activity is replicated in descendants, recorded in the gene, the gene being the only true replicator.

This edition added two extra chapters, and substantial endnotes to the preceding chapters, reflecting new findings and thoughts.

Prior to the s, it was common for altruism to be explained in terms of group selectionwhere the benefits to the organism or even population were supposed to account for the popularity of the genes responsible for the tendency towards that behaviour.
