On Genetic Interests


395,0 kr

From an evolutionary perspective, individuals have a vital interest in the reproduction of their genes. Yet this interest is overlooked by social and political theory at a time when we need to steer an adaptive course through the unnatural modern world of family and communal ties. In modern Darwinian theory, bearing children is only one way to reproduce. Since we share genes with our families, ethnic groups, and the species as a whole, ethnocentrism and humanism can be adaptive. They can also be hazardous when taken ta extremes. On Genetic Interests canvasses strategies and ethnics for conserving our genetic interests in an environmentally sustainable manner sensitive to the interest of others.
