From the Back Cover

The foundations of practice and the most recent discoveries in theintriguing newfield of evolutionary psychology Why is the mind designed the way it is? How does input from the environment interact with the mind to produce behavior? By taking aim at such questions, the science of evolutionary psychology has emerged as a vibrant new discipline producing groundbreaking insights. In The Handbook of Evolutionary Psychology, leading contributors discuss the foundations of the field as well as recent discoveries currently shaping this burgeoning area of psychology. Guided by an editorial board made up of such luminaries as Leda Cosmides, John Tooby, Don Symons, Steve Pinker, Martin Daly, Margo Wilson, and Helena Cronin, the text’s chapters delve into a comprehensive range of topics. They cover the full range of the discipline: Foundations of evolutionary psychology; survival; mating; parenting and kinship; group living; interfaces with traditional disciplines of evolutionary psychology; and interfaces across disciplines. In addition to an in–depth survey of the theory and practice of evolutionary psychology, the text also features an enlightening discussion of this discipline in the context of the law, medicine, and culture. An Afterword by Richard Dawkins provides some final thoughts from the renowned writer and exponent of evolutionary theory. Designed to set the standard for handbooks in the field,The Handbook of Evolutionary Psychologyis an indispensable reference tool for every evolutionary psychologist and student.
