Wilson, Sociobiology]"behaviour

Another hope on the part of philosophers is that understanding theevolution of cognition might give us some insight into the nature ofcertain human psychological traits that have particular philosophicalinterest. One such trait is our moral psychology. Moral psychology isof interest to philosophers who hold naturalistic views of ethicsbecause they believe moral values depend in part on features of thatpsychology; understanding that psychology and how it evolved wouldgive us insight into what the correct moral values are. Understandingthe origins of human moral psychology might also help answer certainmetaethical questions (Street, 2006). As Wilson hoped, scientistsworking in disciplines which are the modern descendants ofsociobiology have contributed to our understanding of the way thatnorms, including moral norms, might have become established in humanevolution (see, for example, Henrich and Boyd, 2001; Sripada,2005). Philosophers still strongly disagree, however, on how theevolution of moral psychology, especially for the acquisition ofnorms, should be understood (Dwyer, 2006; Sripada and Stich, 2006;Sterelny, 2010).

I agree with Wilson that evolutionary theory has some relevance to how we should live our lives. But the connections are subtle, and here, at least, Wilson is too quick to dismiss philosophy and allied disciplines when it comes to answering the questions that matter the most.
