By examining autonomy on a larger scale in the natural world, The Natural Selection of Autonomy clears away the mysteries associated with autonomy claims and shows what is valuable and adaptive (for humans and other animals) in genuine open alternatives -- and how human reason strengthens, rather than creates, autonomous behavior.

Drawing on recent research in biology, psychology, and philosophy, The Natural Selection of Autonomy attacks widely shared and deeply held beliefs that have passed from the historical pre-Darwinian philosophical tradition into contemporary thought, and offers a clear look at the evolution of autonomous moral behavior among many species, including -- but not limited to -- human animals.
