Debunking the Untested Assumptions of Kin Selection Theory

What comprises a successful gene is not ruthless selfishness.


The theory of kin selection and its untested assumptions is still venerated despite the conclusions from laboratory and field observations about animal sociality which do not support the theory. Scientist and author Anthony Caswell brings the truth about unspoken secrets of evolution into the light through his educational book, “The Social Gene”, and his website:

Furthermore, Caswell delves deeper into understanding the emotional qualities animals and humans share under the influence of hormones which control sociality.

Go beyond the borders of the Kin Selection theory and discover the truth about animals and humans by reading Anthony Caswell’s “The Social Gene”. The book is available for purchase on the author’s website.

About the Author
I have been a scientist throughout my adult life studying the mechanism of muscle activation. Although this work was not related directly to the subject of this book, I am well versed in the procedures that establish scientific fact.

My original interest in this field was to understand the paradox of homosexuality – that it persists in the population despite the low number of offspring of homosexuals. The solution to this paradox is a part of a much larger evaluation in this book of how all vertebrate species interact with each other. I was deeply skeptical of the current doctrine of ‘kin selection’ or ‘the selfish gene’ that appeared largely conjectural, unnatural and has never been confirmed in the half century since its first proposal. Its ascendency to become a dogma is based on questionable principles and is contradicted by observation. I sought a simpler and more accessible explanation of animal behavior that could be verified or disputed directly in the field and the laboratory.
