Darwinian Conservatism by Larry Arnhart: The MPS in the Galapagos (11): Wrangham on the Evolution of War

The strange assumption that Fry’s position somehow occupies the moral high ground in this debate is manifest in the article by Elizabeth Culotta in the “News & Analysis” section of Science highlighting Fry’s article.  She says that Fry’s article “strikes a blow for peace,” as if Fry’s critics were motivated by a love of war, which is clearly a false claim.

It would be instructive if Fry would write a response to Wrangham’s criticisms.

If Wrangham is right in his critique of Fry’s reasoning, then this would suggest that the evidence now supports the conclusion that Hobbes was right, and Rousseau was wrong.
