Goal: Elucidating the role of the eco-evolutionary feedback loop in determining evolutionarily stable life histories, with particular reference to the methodological status of the optimisation procedures of classical evolutionary ecology.

Conclusion: A pure optimisation approach holds water only when the eco-evolutionary feedbacks are of a particularly simple kind.
