Generalized Darwinism: An Auxiliary Hypothesis

Salvatore Spagano

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: Human teleological intentionality represents the biggest challenge to a Darwinian metatheoretical framework including socio-economic domain. In order to face the problem, this paper introduces an auxiliary hypothesis: the human will has to be considered as a constitutive component of the socio-economic environment. This means that the human will is the place where evolutionary socio-economic events occur. This perspective absorbs the objection that Continuity Hypothesis theory addresses to Generalized Darwinism.
