In this final episode of a two part series, I continues looking at the interllectual debate that occured between philosopher Mary Midgely and ethologist Richard Dawkins in the pages of the journal Philosophy in the late 1970s and early 80s. I also look at the work of biologist Robert Trivers and the limits of using mathemetical models to understand biological phenomena like human evolution.
