520    Employing computer simulations for the study of the 
       evolution of altruism has been popular since Axelrod's 
       book "The Evolution of Cooperation". But have the myriads 
       of simulation studies that followed in Axelrod's footsteps
       really increased our knowledge about the evolution of 
       altruism or cooperation? This book examines in detail the 
       working mechanisms of simulation based evolutionary 
       explanations of altruism. It shows that the "theoretical 
       insights" that can be derived from simulation studies are 
       often quite arbitrary and of little use for the empirical 
       research.
