Evolutionary Psychology - 2nd edition

Evolutionary Psychology (ISBN10: 0131115294; ISBN13: 9780131115293)
ISBN13: 978-0131115293
ISBN10: 0131115294

Summary: For the Evolutionary Psychology course. Could also be used in the Human Evolution, Sociobiology, and certain Anthropology courses on the origins of human behavior.

The second edition of Evolutionary Psychology is the only text on the market that shows the relevance of evolutionary thinking to the entire range of psychological phenomena, and it does so at a level appropriate for students new to the field. The authors--representing the disciplines of both psy
chology and anthropology--present their material in the manner similar to a traditional introductory text: they first provide the foundation for understanding the fundamentals of modern evolutionary theory; then systematically apply this theory to learning, cognition, perception, emotion, development, pathology, and more. Each chapter deals with the particular topic by illustrating how an evolutionary approach illuminates behavior as a response to problems faced by humans in our evolutionary past.

Features
  • NEW - Three introductory chapters--Replace the original four.
    • Enables students to begin consideration of substantive material earlier in the course.
  • NEW - Expanded coverage of the brain and evolution.
    • Provides students with more comprehensive material on perception, consciousness, intelligence, and personality.
  • NEW - Updated references and new material throughout.
    • Gives students the most up-to-date text available.
  • Clear, lively writing style.
    • Enables students to easily grasp big theories and readily apply them.
  • The meaning of evolution--Fully described, defined, and explained.
    • Provides students with the full background they will need to understand all of the text materials.
  • Trail Markers feature.
    • Helps students avoid common sources of misunderstanding by pointing out areas where they have traditionally had trouble.
  • Summaries--Included at the end of each chapter.
    • Provides students with ease of study and review.
  • Online Instructor's Manual with Tests.
    • Enables instructors to utilize a convenient technological tool, aiding in course preparation.
