While competitive natural selection is widely assumed to be evolution's prime mover, Weiss shows how life generally works on the basis of cooperation. He reveals that focus on competition and cooperation is largely an artifact of compression of time--a distortion that dissolves when life is viewed from developmental and evolutionary time scales.
