The theory of evolution by natural selection originated as a powerful explanatory tool in the biological sciences. Since Darwin's time, basic ideas from the theory have been modified and adapted in ways that permit their application to a variety of issues, ranging from how the human mind works to the emergence of multi-galactic structures. The approach has proven to be well-suited for adapting certain approaches in the "conflict theory" tradition of society. The idea that social organizations compete for scarce resources against on another, and as species-like clusters (e.g. industries) has turned out to be a useful perspective for understanding longer-term changes in the distribution of organizational forms.
