Evolutionary theory holds a vital key to understanding ourselves and is at the centre of modern biology. Yet, as Henry Plotkin shows in this brilliantly argued account, it has never been integrated into psychology, the very science that seeks to explain the processes of the mind. In proposing a more revolutionary approach to psychology Professor Plotkin vividly demonstrates how an evolutionary perspective brings us closer to understanding what it is to be human and how we came to be so. 'Plotkin's EVOLUTION IN MIND and Pinker's HOW THE MIND WORKS present what is probably the best statement you can find in print of a very important contemporary view of mental structure and process' - Jerry Fodor, London Review of Books
