Evolutionary Psychology

Five Volume Set

Evolutionary psychology has close links to Charles Darwin and the idea that the theory of evolution can help us understand individual and social development. In recent years, this field has developed rapidly with the input from neuroscience and neuropsychology and has therefore seen steady growth in terms of research and literature published. 

In this timely collection, Robert Kurzban presents key readings in this burgeoning field. The collection is organized thematically, with volumes dedicated to five fundamental areas:

  • Conceptual foundations
  • Relationships: relatives, mates and allies
  • Cooperation and competition
  • Culture, learning and development
  • The biology of evolutionary psychology
