Abstract

Morality is an aspect of human life that, when challenged and speculated upon never fails to ignite intense passion and social factioning. The implications of evolution offer a unique perspective in the process of objectively evaluating the fundamental components of human motivation, function, and ultimately purpose. A comprehensive socio-biological evolutionary accounting of human behavior offers moral philosophy the strongest starting point from whence to begin the discussions of ethics, politics, and policy or the oughts of modern society.
