Wright is a card-carrying Neo-Darwinian and a stout proponent of the
individualistic, competitive model of human behavior. He's especially enamored
with game theory approaches to human evolution. Yet in his latest book, Nonzero
: The Logic of Human Destiny (2ooo), Wright embraces a vision of cultural
evolution that owes more (unwittingly, no doubt) to Herbert Spencer than to
Charles Darwin. In effect, Nonzero is a book-length argument for the proposition (
masked by the ...

"One point of dwelling on human nature is to stress that the arrow of human
history, though awe-inspriring, is not mystical or uncanny. Technological
evolution, and cultural evolution more broadly, are not alien forces, visited on the
human species from the great beyond. . . . Technology and other forms of culture
come from within. The directionality of culture, of history, is an expression of our
species, of human nature." Robert Wright, Nonzero: The Logic of Human Destiny
