A deeper integration of Selfish Goal Theory and modern evolutionary psychology

, : A deeper integration of Selfish Goal Theory and modern evolutionary psychology. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 37(2): 140-141

Conceptually integrating Selfish Goal Theory with modern evolutionary psychology amplifies theoretical power. Inconsistency, a key principle of Selfish Goal Theory, illustrates this insight. Conflicting goals of seeking sexual variety and successful mate retention furnish one example. Siblings have evolved goals to cooperate and compete, a second example. Integrating Selfish Goal Theory with evolutionary theory can explain much inconsistent goal-directed behavior.

Gene libraries of the micronucleus and the macronuclear anlagen of the polytene chromosome stage of Stylonychia lemnae were screened for internal C4A4 repeats. The number of these internal repeats was shown to be identical in both kinds of nuclei....
