The best way to understand Napoleon Chagnon’s contribution to 
anthropology is to tune in to one of those television wildlife 
documentaries showing an alpha-male baboon beating and biting the living 
bejeezus out of a rival, or being beaten into submission himself. As the 
narrator is wont to say, “Thus the winner of nature’s eternal battle has 
earned the right to enjoy the sexual privileges that guarantee survival 
of the fittest genes.”
