Beschreibung

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 also accompanied by a thoroughly updated companion website

featuring PowerPoints for each chapter, test bank questions, and links to web resources and

videos.

Evolutionary Psychology is an invaluable resource for undergraduates studying psychology,

biology and anthropology.

David M. Buss received his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley. He began his career in academics at Harvard, later moving to the University of Michigan before accepting his current position as professor of psychology at the University of Texas. His primary research interests include human sexuality, mating strategies, conflict between the sexes, homicide, stalking, and sexual victimization. The author of more than 300 scientific articles and six books, Buss has won numerous awards including the American Psychological Association (APA) Distinguished Scientific Award for Early Career Contribution to Psychology, the APA G. Stanley Hall Lectureship, the APA Distinguished Scientist Lecturer Award, and a Robert W. Hamilton Book Award for the first edition of Evolutionary Psychology: The New Science of the Mind. He is also the editor of the first comprehensive Handbook of Evolutionary Psychology (Wiley) and co-editor (with Patricia Hawley) of The Evolution of Personality and Individual Differences. In 2013, he was named one of the 30 most influential living psychologists in the world.
