Routledge, 22 февр. 2019 г. - Всего страниц: 518
Where did we come from?
What is our connection with other life forms?
What are the mechanisms of mind that define what it means to be a human being?
Evolutionary psychology is a revolutionary new science, a true synthesis of modern principles of psychology and evolutionary biology. Since the publication of the award-winning first edition of Evolutionary Psychology, there has been an explosion of research within the field. In this book, David M. Buss examines human behavior from an evolutionary perspective, providing students with the conceptual tools needed to study evolutionary psychology and apply them to empirical research on the human mind.
This edition contains expanded coverage of cultural evolution, with a new section on culture–gene co-evolution, additional studies discussing interbreeding between modern humans and Neanderthals, expanded discussions of evolutionary hypotheses that have been empirically disconfirmed, and much more!
Evolutionary Psychology features a wealth of student-friendly pedagogy including critical-thinking questions and case study boxes designed to show how to apply evolutionary psychology to real-life situations. It is an invaluable resource for undergraduates studying psychology, biology and anthropology.

Although the earliest traces of controlled fire are found in Africa 1.6 million years ago, clear evidence of fire in Europe does not appear until a million years later. The descendants of this first major migration out of Africa ended ...
There is evidence that Neanderthals buried their dead. They lived through ice and cold, thriving all over Europe and the Middle East. Then something dramatic happened 30,000 years ago. Neanderthals suddenly went extinct, after having ...
Scientists have examined three sources of evidence to test which of these theories is correct: anatomical evidence, archeological evidence, and genetic evidence. The anatomical evidence suggests that Neanderthals and Homo sapiens ...
But one thing is known with reasonable certainty: The Neanderthals did not partake. The “creative explosion” was almost exclusively limited to Homo sapiens. The archeological evidence, in short, supports the OOA (Klein, 2008).
Proponents of the MRC, for example, challenge the interpretation of the genetic evidence, and there are enough anomalies, such as in Australian fossil sites, to raise legitimate concerns about the OOA (Hawks & Wolpoff, 2001; ...
