I added the following paragraph. Since I was arguing that play is intrinsic and involves intentional actions not wholly accountable by evolution, I wanted to distinguish explanations proper to the sphere of evolutionary theory from those that remain the domain of Intentional Action.
The various concepts of behavior as Intentional Action are clarified in the posting, A Short Course in Descriptive Psychology.
