Name: Anth. 160 Reciprocal Altruism
Description: These notes extend on the idea of altruistic behavior, and shows a much more realistic reason as to why individuals behave nicely around strangers: reciprocal altruism. Here, the idea of kinship and the benefits that come out of doing things such as sharing food, cooperating and grooming show the importance of reciprocity and the role it plays in societies all around the globe.
