One of Robin Hanson's greatest unpublishable papers has finally been published. "Showing That You Care: The Evolution of Health Altruism" appears in the latest issue of Medical Hypotheses. Here's Robin summarizing the paper and his decade-plus struggle to publish it.
And now, in the spirit of Robin's paper, it's time to show that I care. Three cheers for Robin!
P.S. My compliments to Medical Hypotheses editor, Bruce Charlton, for his intellectual entrepreneurship.
If this is anything like hiring the unhirable academic, there may be hope for me yet! :-)
