Hi Howard,
here's the link but it's an old criticism. Marks is up to date. I
remember reading about Deborah Gordon's work on ants. Some
controversy on whether it's an implicit critique of EO Wilson's
sociobiology. Shows ant castes don't exist, queen doesn't have
control; and she explores self-organization. Perhaps implicit is the
point that once certain sociobiological prejudices are shed, ant
colonies appear in a new light and allow us to expand our knowledge
of self organizing systems.
