Rodrigues and Gardner have focused upon a key set of claims from Laland and colleagues, who advocate for an extended evolutionary synthesis (Laland et al. Proc R Soc B Biol Sci 282:20151019, 2015). Laland et al. focus their paper on a list of contrasting assumptions from the Modern Synthesis and an extended evolutionary synthesis (EES). It is this list that Rodrigues and Gardner take issue with, claiming that inclusive fitness theory has a response to all the purported inadequacies the extension seeks to solve. Their very straightforward question is why has inclusive fitness theory been ignored by those seeking extension?
