And of course it occurred to me that the reason I was thinking about evolution in that inclusive sense was probably that Alan Rayner’s “Inclusional Research” web-site and forum had just gone live and I was browsing around it last night.
Alan’s take on evolution from his inclusional perspective he calls “natural inclusion” rather as an antidote to “natural selection”, terminology which implies progress of one always at the expense of another – an either or choice, a selection; whereas there are many co-evolutionary mechanisms that involve cooperation and mutual benefit of replicators.
