For several years the study of social behavior has been undergoing a revolution with far-reaching consequences for the social and biological sciences.

I will argue that there is one exception: siblings whose group behavior is an aspect of parental investment, and whose altruism toward one another has evolved because it fu rthers the reproductive interests of the parent(s). of the evolution of any characters which are on average to the disadvantage of the individuals possessing them. If natural selection followed the classical models exclusively, species would not show any behaviour more positively social than the coming together of the sexes and parental care.
