Where did we come from? What is our association with other life forms? What are the mechanisms of the mind that explain what it means to be a human being? Evolutionary psychology is a revolutionary new science; a true synthesis of modern principles of psychology and evolutionary biology.

Since the publication of the award-winning first edition of Evolutionary Psychology (PDF); there has been an outburst of research within the field. In this ebook; David M. Buss explores human behavior from an evolutionary viewpoint; providing college students with the conceptual tools required to study evolutionary psychology and implement them to empirical research on the human mind. The 6th edition has expanded coverage of cultural evolution; with a new segment on culture–gene co-evolution; additional studies discussing interbreeding between modern humans and Neanderthals; expanded discussions of evolutionary hypotheses that have been empirically disconfirmed; and lots more!

Evolutionary Psychology: The New Science of the Mind 6th edition features a wealth of student-friendly pedagogy including case study boxes and critical-thinking questions designed to show how to apply evolutionary psychology to real-life situations. It is also accompanied by a thoroughly updated companion website featuring PowerPoints for each chapter; links to web resources and videos and test bank questions (not included in this sale).

Evolutionary Psychology 6e is a valuable resource for undergraduates studying biology; psychology; and anthropology.
