It might also be the case that selection works at a group level, so that societies that enforce mutilation are more stable because of less conflict over paternity, Wilson says.


What is up with people named "Wilson" and group selection?

In reading Dawkins before encountering the arguments for group selection, I seem to be unable to understand how group selection offers a greater explanatory power.
