Group selection and the group mind in science

This plausible group-selection model should aid the conceptual integration of the natural and social sciences, but testing in vertebrates is needed. The history of the vehicles-of-selection debate is compared with the controversy over the readmission of innate behavior and genetics to a respectable position in behavioral study. In the spirit of Wilson & Sober a new “commandment ” for the conduct of science is proposed. © 1994, Cambridge University Press. All rights reserved.
