Mutual Aid: A Factor of Evolution

by

Mutual Aid: A Factor of Evolution Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Writing partly in response to Social Darwinism, Kropotkin draws on his scientific knowledge to illustrate the phenomenon of cooperation. After examining the evidence of cooperation in nonhuman animals, pre-feudal societies, medieval cities, and in modern times, he concludes that cooperation and mutual aid are the most important factors in the evolution of the species and the ability to survive.

Synopsis:

In one of his most influential works, Kropotkin challenges classical Darwinism, arguing that in nature, co-operation is as important as competition.

About the Author

He wrote many other books, pamphlets and articles, including The Conquest of Bread and Fields, Factories and Workshops.
