As mentioned, social darwinism sees humans pitted against each other favoring the 'survival of the fittest'. The idea being that humans within a social environment will compete with one another for resources, similar to what Charles Darwin though to be a key feature in the advancement of one species over another. The idea of racism, and the upper class being superior to lower class minority groups might be a view aligned with Social Darwinism. Demassio argues that the nesting of homeostasis extends beyond the indvidual into their collective interactions. Moreover, the feature of connatus extending beyond biology and acting as a governing factor in ones social life. From a biological perspective, we may recognize the changing body state of another and attempt to adjust our feelings (and ultimately our behavior) in an effort to bring 'the other' back towards a state of homeostasis. For example, attempting to console a grieving friend in an attempt to shift them from a state of sorrow back towards joy. This cooperative behavior is in direct opposition with the view of social darwinism, which sees humans in a continual battle for survival where only the strongest survive.
