It has recently been shown, in flat Robertson-Walker geometries, that the dynamics of gravitational actions which are minimally coupled to matter fields leads to the appearance of "attractors" - sets of physical observables on which phase space measures become peaked. These attractors will be examined in the context of inhomogeneous perturbations about the FRW background and in the context of anisotropic Bianchi I systems. We show that maximally expanding solutions are generically attractors, i.e. any measure based on phase-space observables becomes sharply peaked about those solutions which have P=−ρ.
