Evolution and Human Behaviour: An Introduction to Darwinian Anthropology

Front Cover
Routledge, 2008 - Philosophy - 343 pages

Originally published in 1967. This reprints the second edition of 1973, revised and expanded.

Evolution and Human Behaviour considers man's biological and cultural development within the framework of Darwinian evolution. Rejecting analogue models of biological evolution common in the social sciences, the author shows how the theory of biological evolution applies to the study of contemporary human behaviour.
