Example text

Among those available to the highest order of organisms, mankind included, are reactions and reflexes (that operate without need of a cerebral cortex) that are not in the conscious cognitive problem-solving class of response. There are other biological mechanisms that are at the same level of operation, although of increasing complexity, such as internal biochemical balances and controls, digestion, higher-order sensing (seeing, hearing) and movement (from reflexive eyeblink and knee-jerk to walking and manipulation).

Variations to instinct must be bred in and cannot be thought out (see Box 5b for added detail). This distinction between these three separate ‘problem-solving’ strategies (by construction, by instinct, and by learning) available to organisms permits a more controversial but equally useful theoretical stance. It posits that mankind is unique in having no instinct. This position can be reached by defining all the strategies tightly and by eliminating loose terminology. For instance, no organism has a survival instinct – survival is the outcome of all its behaviour, it is not a unit of behaviour in itself.

The proposal that challenges the paradigm has more ‘unknown’ elements, making its assessment, in terms of its likely success and the extent of the possible penalty, a much more difficult and hazardous operation. This may be why even the more modest proposals that were seen to be on the periphery of the paradigm often took months to win acceptance. Conversely some quite major and costly proposals, visibly quite in accord with the prevailing paradigm and therefore quite expected and with their underlying principles understood, got through more easily.
