CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Evolutionary theory is driving forward our understanding of human behaviour
like never before. Yet, many of us lack a firm grasp of the basics of the
theory of evolution - a clear picture of what evolution is, and how and why it
operates. But such clarity is essential if we are to fully understand and
explore the fascinating behavioural questions that lie before us.
Evolution and Genetics for Psychology lays out the conceptual toolkit one
needs in order to think in evolutionary terms - and to apply this thinking to
any subject. With the toolkit firmly in place, it goes on to show how these key
concepts are applied to issues of human behaviour, from sex to social
relationships, to learning.
Evolution and Genetics for Psychology does not set out to teach evolutionary
psychology or behavioural genetics, but explores the key fundamental principles
on which such disciplines are based. If you need to understand what
heritability really means, what the difference is between a gene and an allele,
or whether evolutionary and social explanations are compatible, this book is
the survival guide you need.
