Suboptimalities for sure: Arguments from evolutionary theory

Rob Withagen, John van der Kamp, Matthieu de Wit

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


Rahnev & Denison (R&D) addressed the issue of (sub)optimalities in perception but only made a passing reference to evolutionary thinking. In our commentary, we concur with the authors' claim that evolution does not work toward optimalities, but argue that an evolutionary perspective on perception questions the Bayesian approach that the authors adopted.
