I was thinking about this the other day:
It seems that we see a teleology in nature. So, like, birds migrate for the sake of surviving seasonal change. What I mean here is that their natural behaviour (migration) ensures their survival, even if it is something accidental.
Am I right in assuming that all animal behaviour can be traced teleologically to something like “protecting their young” and “ensuring their own survival? (human beings and domesticated animals excluded).
What are some exceptions to the rule people can think of? (Please don’t say that dolphins shag for pleasure).
