Introducing three new papers on the concept of group selection, which Steven Pinker calls “a scientific dust bunny, a hairy blob in which anything having to do with ‘groups’ clings to anything having to do with ‘selection’.”
We are pleased to announce the publication of “Duetting as a collective behavior”, co-authored with David Logue at the University of Lethbridge.
For five years—and probably more—I've been tinkering with an idea. I think it may be the most interesting one I've ever had, and I'm overjoyed to say that it's just been published in fine form in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences. (Don't worry: there's a video at the bottom of this page that will make sense of it, I promise. Feel free to skip to the end if you'd rather not wait.)
