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 ...show morechology 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.
