The Infanticidal Logic of Evolution and Culture

앞표지
University of Delaware Press, 2007 - 363페이지
This book argues that, because existence costs (the two words are cognates), any living thing must economize - shift more of its energy costs onto the world, including other living things, than its competitors are able to; that to economize is therefore to engage in exchanges that are sacrificial at their core; and that such economization is infanticidal in its ultimate implications.
