Selectionism and stage change: The dynamics of evolution, I

World Futures 64 (5 - 7):348 – 360 (2008)
Abstract
Selectionism addresses the process of transition or change. In its evolution, Homo Sapiens has demonstrated such transitions to more hierarchically complex stages of performance at the individual, organizational, cultural, and biological levels. Traditionally, changes in biological, cultural, organizational, and individual behavior have been studied separately, with very little overlap. The current theory integrates selectionism across these realms, while noting that in each, selectionism operates through somewhat different mechanisms. Selectionism is comprised of complex processes in which tasks of greater hierarchical complexity may be selected. Increased stages of performance underlie evolution's dynamics of increased complexity.
