9780131115293: Evolutionary Psychology

For the Evolutionary Psychology course. Could also be used in 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 psychology 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.

From the Back Cover:

In its first edition, Evolutionary Psychology: The Science of the Mind was the premier and original text for the burgeoning field of evolutionary psychology. David Buss, one of the foremost researchers in the field, has thoroughly revised his already enormously successful text to provide an even more comprehensive overview of this dynamic field. Using cutting-edge research and an engaging writing style, the Second Edition of Evolutionary Psychologyensures that your students will master the material presented.

Highlights of the Second Edition:

  • Offers a logical progression of topics by discussing adaptive problems that humans face.
  • Integrates additional material on cognition and language throughout the text.
  • Includes stories, media and cultural examples and illustrations, and applications to the personal lives of students.
