Synopsis: Evolutionary Psychology: A Beginner’s Guide is a uniquely accessible yet comprehensive guide to the study of the effects of evolutionary theory on human behaviour. Written specifically for the general reader, and for entry-level students, it covers all the most important elements of this interdisciplinary subject, from the role of evolution in our selection of partner, to the influence of genetics on parenting. The book draws widely on examples, case studies and background facts to convey a substantial amount of information, and is authored by the UK’s leading experts in the field, from the only dedicated research and teaching institute.

About the Author: Robin Dunbar is Professor of Evolutionary Psychology at the University of Oxford. He is the author of more than a dozen books. Louise Barrett is Professor of Psychology at the University of Lethbridge and John Lycett is a lecturer in Evolutionary Psychology at the University of Liverpool.

Book Description Oneworld/Viva Books Private Limited, 2006. Softcover. Book Condition: New. Why do young women prefer older men? And what makes us feel guilty about lying? In this concise and engaging introduction to evolutionary psychology, the authors demonstrate how this cutting-edge new science might hold the answers to the puzzles behind our motivations and desires. With penetrating insights into a wide range of topics they consider: ? the rules of attraction ? what makes men and womendesirable to each other? ? a ?gene for God?? could religion be a product of evolution? ? selfishness and altruism - how did we come to be moral?
