Abstract: This article argues that contrary to the selfish gene idea popularized by Richard Dawkins, given the diverse encounters organisms faced throughout their evolutionary history, that team reasoning potentially would be viability. Opposing the conventional wisdom, this opens the possibility that members of species could cooperate in a mixture of games including Prisoners Dilemma, Hawk-Dove, and Hi Lo. The paper builds on Richard Bacharach's theory of team reasoning and presents a replicator dynamic model to construct an analytic model argument.
