Robin Hanson's papers are infuriating because they are delightfully absurd. Showing That You Care: The Evolution of Health Altruism is an evolutionary psychology paper by Hanson that evaluates "which types of altruists can both account well for observed behavior in health and health policy, and fit well with what we know about the behavior and environment of our hunter-gatherer and primate ancestors, where such altruism presumably evolved?" The LIBERTARIAN BIOETHICS BLOG does not care about this paper and does not believe this view has anything to do with our human ancestors.
