Towards uniting the behavioral sciences with a gene-centered approach to altruism

  • R. Michael Brown (a1) and Stephanie L. Brown (a2)

We support the ambitious goal of unification within the behavioral sciences. We suggest that Darwinian evolution by means of natural selection can provide the integrative glue for this purpose, and we review our own work on selective investment theory (SIT), which is an example of how other-regarding preferences can be accommodated by a gene-centered account of evolution.
