Does Altruism Exist? : Culture, Genes, and the Welfare of Others

Wilson, David Sloan More by this author...£12.99

David Sloan Wilson, one of the world's leading evolutionists, addresses a question that has puzzled philosophers, psychologists, and evolutionary biologists for centuries: does altruism exist naturally among the Earth's creatures?
