Did you mean to say "commissioning many monkeys to write a textbook"?


So, have you ever ran across a book called Darwinian Conservatism in your research? If so, what did you think of it?


@John: I always really mean monkeys.

@Jake: I have, actually, via regular commenter KWK. It's not the most convincing line of reasoning, though I say that as a general impression, not as a result of a serious scholarly engagement with it. (By the time KWK showed me that book, I'd long been sick of my dissertation and treated it with a respect undeserved.)
