Workshop on The Philosophy of Social Evolution
23 February 2018, 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm
How does social behaviour evolve in the natural world? How can social evolution theory shed light on the origins of new levels of biological organization? How can W. D. Hamilton’s concept of “inclusive fitness” help us to understand cooperation in microorganisms, insects and humans?
This half-day workshop on Friday 23 February will consider these questions with reference to Jonathan Birch’s new book, The Philosophy of Social Evolution, published by Oxford University Press.
