Robert Trivers Ph.D.

Robert Trivers, Ph.D., has concentrated on building social theory based on natural selection and understanding the evolution of selfish genetic elements—genes that harm the organism they are in but spread through various genetic tricks. His most recent book is on the function and logic of self-deception, and this blog is based on that work.
