Description

This course examines human behavior and mental phenomena as the products of evolution by natural and sexual selection. Data on human and animal psychology, such as those found in studies of consciousness and cognition will be interpreted in light of principles of evolution, and current work designed to test evolutionary predictions will be considered. Three lecture hours per week.
