This paper presents a viscous population multi-agent system, which is claimed to provide scope for the emergence of cooperation both through iterated interaction and through kin selection. Theoretical examinations of iterated Interaction and kin selection within the model are conducted and compared with empirical results. It is concluded that the model does allow for the operation both of iterated interaction and kin selection. The methods presented in the paper allow the operation of the two mechanisms to be distinguished in any instance of the model
