ABSTRACT
The article responds to a preceding thematic article in this issue by Hans Mohr titled "Evolutionary Ethics." The author objects to Mohr's insistence that evolutionary moral conduct needs to be judged rather than merely explained, as in sociobiology. Also questioned is whether social cooperation, as among colonial insects, might adequately explain evolutionary ethics.
