Sample text

By means of the genetic process and sexual or asexual reproduction, the species is duplicated over time. The individual duplicates himself in space and time in such a way that the duplicate he reproduces is itself capable of reproduction, so that theoretically an infinite progress becomes possible. In cell division self-maintenance and species maintenance are both achieved at once. The concept of duplication is central not only for biology but also for psychology. This is so because individual and species duplication is achieved by a set of mechanisms which are themselves essentially duplicative.

His skin. Secondly, in some contrast to Darwin’s views, natural selection by reproduction is held to be the only non-random selective factor. The problem of adaptation then has shifted somewhat from the problem how does an individual “survive” to how does a population of genes maintain itself through correlations between reproductive success and adaptation. From this position, in addition to a strong sex drive, such characteristics as sensitivity to novel stimuli, sensitivity to social stimuli, aggressiveness, timidity and other affects become no less important foci for natural selection than the development of a homeostatic autonomic system and an adapted drive system.

To Morris Halle, Fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences I am indebted for much rewarding discussion of ideas we had independently come to over different routes. I particularly profited from his conception of analysis by synthesis in which an idea first proposed by D. M. MacKay, independently conceived by me, was, also independently, carried to a more powerful formulation by Halle. MacKay, Halle and myself, each unaware of the others’ work, had arrived at the same solution to the problem of perception.
