Editorial Reviews

Review

"This volume provides an interesting and insightful examination of the evolution of consciousness, cognition, decision-making, actions, and cultural norms in terms of collective consequences and genetic mechanisms... Overall, this volume provides a rich and stimulating foray into the nexus of evolution and culture... I applaud these authors on their step into risky territory which I expect will foster further conversation and theoretical integration and understanding." - Randal G. Tonks, University of Victoria, in Canadian Psychology

"As this book documents, the persistent nature vs. nurture question is founded on a myth. Evolved adaptations provide the foundation for culture, and culture affects the expression of adaptations in modern behavior. This volume, whose contributors are at the forefront of a new wave in science, is filled with gems. Essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the human animal." - Martie G. Haselton, Ph.D., UCLA Center for Behavior, Evolution, and Culture, USA
