The genius of Robert Trivers (18 oct 14)
I read "The Folly of Fools" when it came out. Now I'm backfilling earlier Trivers: "Natural Selection and Social Theory", and "Social Evolution". He held the torch of sociobiology high while social "scientists" tried hard to extinguish it. By 1970, when they were still respected in academia, he'd already dismissed Freud and Marx.
