Unto Others: The Evolution and Psychology of Unselfish Behavior

Elliott Sober, David Sloan Wilson

No matter what we do, however kind or generous our deeds may seem, a hidden motive of selfishness lurks -- or so science has claimed for years. This book, a detailed case study of scientific change, tells us differently. In Unto Others philosopher Elliott Sober and biologist David Sloan Wilson demonstrate once and for all that unselfish behavior is in fact an important feature of both biological and human nature. Their book provides a panoramic view of altruism throughout the animal kingdom-from self-sacrificing parasites, to insects that subsume themselves in the superorganism of a colony, to the human capacity for selflessness -- even as it explains the evolutionary sense of such behavior.
