Inheritance and Cooperation
This network was funded from January 2015 - January 2017.
This network brought together philosophers, biologists, psychologists and anthropologists to think about inheritance, to think about the evolution of cooperation, and to think about ways in which the two can be mutually illuminating.
Connecting topics include major transitions, inclusive fitness theory, cultural evolution, extended inheritance theory (including epigenetics, niche construction theory, developmental systems theory and information transmission, human nature, lateral gene transfer, evolutionary game theory, definitions of reproduction and more).
This TORCH network is also supported by the Balliol Interdisciplinary Institute (BII). Click here to find out more about the BII.
