Heeding Darwin but ignoring Bernard: External behaviors are not selected, internal goals are

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (3):534-535 (2001)
Hull et al. see responses and properties of responses as units of selection in behavioral change. However, this perspective cannot account for goal-directed behavior in which organisms employ variable means to reliably attain intended consequences. An alternative perspective is offered in which the intended consequences (goals) of behavior serve as the units of selection in behavior change.
