But this action might not be a conflict of the ‘self-interest’ of the organism with his or her genes, since a person using birth control might also be enhancing the survival chances of their genes by limiting family size to conform with available resources, thus avoiding extinction as predicted under the Malthusian model of population growth.


He describes organisms as apparently purposive but fundamentally simple survival machines, which use negative feedback to achieve control. Modern versions of “multilevel selection” claim to have overcome the original objections, [16] namely, that at that gne no known form of group selection led to an evolutionarily stable strategy.
