Darwin's Legacy in Psychology
NewSouth, Incorporated, Feb 1, 2013 - 50 pages
In this volume, excerpted from Charles Darwin: A Celebration of His Life and Legacy (NewSouth Books, 2013), Lewis Barker chronicles Darwin's legacy in psychology. Barker describes the pre-Darwinian philosophical roots of psychology, Darwin's forthright contributions to psychological theory, Darwin's influence on early psychologists, and the role of neo-Darwinian thinking in contemporary psychology. He argues that Darwin's On the Origin of Species has been more influential in psychology than the great biologist's later works that are directly related to human evolution and mental life: The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex (1871) and The Expression of Emotions in Man and Other Animals (1872).
