The integrative framework for the behavioural sciences has already been discovered, and it is the adaptationist approach

  • Michael E. Price (a1), William M. Brown (a1) and Oliver S. Curry (a2)

Abstract

The adaptationist framework is necessary and sufficient for unifying the social and natural sciences. Gintis's “beliefs, preferences, and constraints” (BPC) model compares unfavorably to this framework because it lacks criteria for determining special design, incorrectly assumes that standard evolutionary theory predicts individual rationality maximisation, does not adequately recognize the impact of psychological mechanisms on culture, and is mute on the behavioural implications of intragenomic conflict.
