It was ethologist Konrad Lorentz considered the conceptual consequences for understanding intelligence were it considered to be an adaptation. In order to understand how he came to this view, it is necessary to see Lorenz within the context of the discipline, ethology, that he himself founded; the critical responses, especially from north America, to his theory; and how such criticism led him to revise his ideas about how learning and evolution relate to one another.
