Policy-making the Darwinist Way

The UK’s Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures, and Commerce (RSA) has a history that stretches back to the Enlightenment. Today, it is a progressive policy organization that appreciates the relevance of evolutionary theory and features an article about the Evolution Institute in the current issue of its journal. The article is written by Evolution Institute co-director David Sloan Wilson and is titled “Policymaking the Darwinist Way.” It provides a concise summary of the EI’s mission and three current foci on childhood education, risky adolescent behavior, and the nature of regulation.
