The evolution of cooperation by Robert M Axelrod( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1,383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The much-discussed book that explores how cooperation can emerge in a world of self-seeking egoists--whether superpowers, businesses, or individuals--when there is no central authority to police their actions. The Evolution of Cooperation addresses a simple yet age-old question: if living things evolve through competition, how can cooperation ever emerge? Despite the abundant evidence of cooperation all around us, there existed no purely naturalistic answer to this question until 1979, when Robert Axelrod famously ran a computer tournament featuring a standard game-theory exercise called The Prisoner's Dilemma. To everyone's surprise, the program that won the tournament, named Tit for Tat, was not only the simplest but the most "cooperative" entrant. This unexpected victory proved that cooperation--one might even say altruism--is mathematically possible and therefore needs no hidden hand or divine agent to create and sustain it. A great roadblock to the understanding of all sorts of behavior was at last removed. The updated edition includes an extensive new chapter on cooperation in cancer cells and among terrorist organizations."--Publisher

What Darwin didn't know( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Honoring the 150th anniversary of the publication of Darwin's revolutionary, Origin of species, this BBC special confirms how the advance of science has exonerated Darwin's theory of evolution. Challenged by his peers such as Richard Owen, and criticized by skeptics, such as Fleeming Jenkin, Darwin acknowledged the inconsistencies in his initial theory. He appealed to future generations to draw inspiration from his findings and to solve the challenges with which his controversial theory was riddled. Scientists such as August Vicemon, Gregor Mendel, Ronald Fisher, Bill Hamilton and Ernst Haeckeland used Darwin's theory to give us new scientific fields, tools and understanding of the natural world. What Darwin didn't know will provide students with an historical understanding of Darwin's world and his legacy to future scientists who embraced Darwin's heretical ideas to give us modern science

All watched over by machines of loving grace( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This episode looks at why we humans find this machine vision so beguiling. The film argues it is because all political dreams of changing the world for the better seem to have failed - so we have retreated into machine-fantasies that say we have no control over our actions because they excuse our failure. At the heart of the film is one of the most famous scientists in the world - Bill Hamilton. He argued that human behaviour is really guided by codes buried deep within us. It was later popularised by Richard Dawkins as 'the selfish gene'. It said that individual human beings are really just machines whose only job is to make sure the codes are passed on for eternity. The film begins in 2000 in the jungles of the Congo and Rwanda. Hamilton is there to help prove his dark theories. But all around him the Congo is being torn apart by 'Africa's First World War'. The film then interweaves the two stories - the strange roots of Hamilton's theories, and the history of the West's tortured relationship with the Congo over the past 100 years."--BBC2 website

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

W.D. Hamilton (1936-2000) has been described by Richard Dawkins as 'a good candidate for the title of most distinguished Darwinian since Darwin'. His work on evolutionary biology continues to influence scientists working across a wide variety of disciplines, including evolution, population genetics, animal behaviour, genetics, anthropology, and ecology. This third and final volume of Narrow Roads of Gene Land contains Hamilton's key papers published between 1990 and 2000,a period in which he covered a great diversity of topics, often in collaboration with other scientists.
