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.
David Buss examines human behavior from an evolutionary perspective and provides students with the conceptual tools needed to study evolutionary psychology, and applies them to empirical research on the human mind. Evolutionary Psychology: The New Science of the Mind (6th Edition) features pedagogy such as critical thinking questions and case study boxes that help students gain an understanding of how to apply evolutionary psychology to real life situations.
Since the publication of the award-winning first edition of Evolutionary Psychology, there has been an explosion of new research within the field. The new edition features expanded coverage of cultural evolution, with a new section on culture-gene coevolution, new studies on evidence for a small amount of interbreeding between modern humans and Neanderthals, expanded discussions of evolutionary hypotheses that have been empirically disconfirmed, and many more! The eResource features completely updated PowerPoints for each chapter, updated test bank questions and new links to web resources and videos.
Evolutionary Psychology is an invaluable resource for Undergraduates studying psychology, biology and anthropology.
