I stated earlier this week that I would post on papers from William D. Hamilton’s Narrow Roads of Gene Land. I’ve narrowed down which ones I’ll blog:
Day 1: The genetical evolution of social behaviour. I
Day 2: The genetical evolution of social behaviour. II
Day 3: The moulding of senescence by natural selection
Day 4: Extraordinary sex ratios
Day 5: Innate social aptitudes of man

  1. Yay! Some proper science! I shall try to read along with you.

  2. Hopefully Hamilton talks about the history of the Price equation paper in his background to the “innate social aptitudes…” paper. Price’s paper was one of the few modern-era Nature papers that does NOT have citations!
    I’m looking forward to your thoughts/comments on all these papers Razib, particularly on the “innate social aptitudes…” paper.

  3. i don’t think that much of the scholarship in that paper rich. but i thought i should cover it since it is pretty controversial as the ‘nazi paper.’

  4. I could be thinking of the wrong paper. In some paper in the early 70’s Hamilton uses the Price Equation to re-derive his kin selection equation, maybe it’s not in the “social aptitudes…” paper.
