El Gen Egoista / the Selfish Gene

According to Godfrey-Smith, this more careful vocabulary has cleared up “misunderstandings in the “units of selection” debates. Retrieved 1 April Social Bonding and Nurture Kinship: Hull suggests that, despite some similarities, Dawkins takes too narrow a view of these terms, engendering some of the objections to his rlchard. Adaptation and Natural Selection: Similarly, Dawkins argues, there are conflicts of interest between males and females, but he notes that R.

Ina 30th-anniversary edition [19] was published with the Trivers foreword and a new introduction by the author. Principles Of Comparative Psychology Digital printing of ed. A lineage is expected to evolve to maximise its inclusive fitness —the number of copies of its genes passed on globally rather than by a particular individual. This allows him to consider what selfishness in a gene might actually mean, describing W.

Some authors consider facets of this debate between Dawkins and his critics about the level of selection to richatd blather: Hamilton and others who opposed group irchard and selection aimed directly at benefit to the individual organism: Archived from the original on 15 June University of California Press.


The Selfish Gene was extremely popular when first published, causing “a silent and almost immediate revolution in biology”, [18] and it continues to be widely read.

Stephen Jay Gould took exception to calling the gene a ‘unit of selection’ because selection acted only upon phenotypes. Although Dawkins and biologists in general recognize these phenomena result in more copies of a gene, evidence is inconclusive whether this success is selected for at a group or individual level.

Other authors say Dawkins has failed to make some critical distinctions, in particular, the difference between group selection for group advantage and group selection conveying individual advantage.

Amotz Zahavi ‘s theory of honest signalling explains stotting as a selfish act, he argues, improving the springbok’s chances of escaping from a predator by indicating how difficult the chase would be.

Retrieved 18 November In fact, Dawkins has proposed that it is at the level of the extended phenotype: With altruism this will happen only if the affected individual is a relative of the altruist, therefore having an increased chance of carrying the gene. The proven best way in evolutionary biology, as in most of science, is to define a problem arising during empirical research, then select or devise the theory that is needed to solve it.

El Gen Egoista / the Selfish Gene by Dawkins, Richard

These examples might suggest that there is a power struggle between genes and their interactor. But this action might not be a conflict of the ‘self-interest’ of the organism with his or her genes, since a person using birth control might also be enhancing the survival chances of their genes by limiting family size to conform with available resources, thus avoiding extinction as predicted under the Malthusian model of population growth.


The original replicator Dawkins’ R eplicator was the initial molecule which first managed to reproduce itself and thus gained an advantage over other molecules within the primordial soup.

In raising awareness of Hamilton’s ideas, as well as making its own valuable contributions to the field, the book has also stimulated research on human inclusive fitness.

He then introduces the idea of the evolutionarily stable rawkinsand uses it to explain why alternative competitive strategies like bullying and retaliating exist. Dawkins proposes the idea of the “replicator”: Retrieved 6 January The claim still is made by some that it would take only a single individual with a tendency towards more selfish behaviour to undermine a population otherwise filled only with the gene for altruism towards non-kin. In describing genes as being “selfish”, Dawkins states unequivocally that he dawoins not intend to imply that they are driven by daawkins motives or willbut merely that their effects can be metaphorically and pedagogically described as if they were.

An example of such a conflict might be a person using birth control to prevent fertilisation, thereby inhibiting the replication of his or her genes. Retrieved from ” https: In Mind in Lifethe philosopher Evan Thompson has assembled a multi-sourced objection to the “selfish gene” idea.

The book has been translated into at least 23 languages including Arabic, Ell and Turkish.
