Price Equation and Altruism

Post by Shmulik » Sun Jun 16, 2013 1:27 pm

Hey,

Does Price Equation, when it comes to explain how the altruism trait can spread, breaks down if the group has only one individual who has the trait?
If the Equation needs more than one altruistic individual (and actually many individuals) within the group, is it not the case that the Price Equation is a non starter when is comes to explain how altruism can spread?

Thanks
