The Evolutionary Psychology FAQ
Last updated September 8, 2004.
This FAQ is written and maintained by Edward Hagen , formerly of the Center for Evolutionary Psychology, University of California, Santa Barbara, and now at the Institute for Theoretical Biology in Berlin. The FAQ assumes a basic knowledge of genes and natural selection. Its purpose is to outline the foundations of evolutionary psychology. These foundations are extremely robust (though not beyond criticism). The status of specific hypotheses (e.g., mate selection preferences, cheater detection modules) is more debatable, and will not be discussed in detail here. In addition, I address many of the common misconceptions about evolutionary psychology. This FAQ draws upon the work of many individuals. Comments and criticisms regarding it are welcome: . A Russian translation of this FAQ is also available. Frequently asked questions:
  • What is evolutionary psychology? What is the EEA and why is it important? (general answer) What is the EEA? (detailed answer) Isn't it true that we can't know what happened in the distant past, so the EEA concept is useless? ...

    ... e Evolution (also known as biological genetic or organic evolution ) is the change in the inherited traits of a population of organisms through successive generations. This change results from interactions between processes that introduce variation into a population, and other processes that remove it. As a result, variants with particular traits become more, or less, common. A trait is a particular characteristic— anatomical biochemical or behavioural —that is the result of gene–environment interaction The main source of variation is mutation , which introduces genetic changes. These changes are

    ... e Evolutionary psychology EP ) explains psychological traits —such as memory perception , or language —as adaptations , that is, as the functional products of natural selection or sexual selection Adaptationist thinking about physiological mechanisms, such as the heart, lungs, and immune system, is common in evolutionary biology . Evolutionary psychology applies the same thinking to psychology. Modern evolutionary psychologists argue that much of human behavior is generated by psychological adaptations that evolved to solve recurrent problems in human ancestral environments. They hypothesize, for example, that humans have inherited special mental capacities for acquiring language, making it nearly automatic, while inheriting no capacity specifically for reading and writing. Other adaptations, according to EP, might include the abilities to infer others' emotions, to discern kin from non-kin, to identify and prefer healthier mates, to cooperate with others, and so on. Consistent with the theory of natural selection, evolutionary psychology sees organisms as often in conflict with others of their species, including mates and relatives. For example, mother mammals and their young offspring sometimes struggle over weaning, which benefits the mother more than the child. Humans, however, have a marked capacity for cooperation under certain conditions as well.

      What is Evolutionary Astrology?
      Evolutionary Astrology is a term most popularized by the writings of Jeffrey Wolf Green. * It embraces a paradigm, or body of knowledge that can be understood through observation and correlation, which measures the growth of a Soul from life to life. The principle of reincarnation underlies Evolutionary Astrology. Human consciousness evolves as it exhausts the separating desire nature and expands in conscious ways to include, share and give back as the Soul reconnects with Universal energy. This process is no less than the discovery of the Soul past and present life as well as future potential. It is less a technical approach and more a philosophical outlook based in natural law and the expansion of human consciousness. The School of Evolutionary Astrology and our learn astrology online correspondence course helps guide the student through this process. Evolutionary Astrology includes a specific methodology that involves the planet Pluto and the Moons Nodes as representative of the Soul in any given birth chart.

    Male Female Attraction - Evolutionary Theory
    Labels: Evolutionary Theory 0 comments Is the root of our attraction in Evolutionary Theory?
    The root of male female attraction: is this the greatest mystery of all? People have been wondering for generations just what is the source of the thing that makes someone attracted to someone else? And while we are asking this question, how about finding out how do I make it work for me?
    This question has been the basis of academic study from Ivy League school academics to pop culture gurus and falls under the sub heading of behavioural studies. There are many theories. In the words of one well known dating expert: " attraction is not a choice
    He may not be wrong. It seems as if, some scientists and academics would agree. Evolutionary Theory of human attraction provides that interpersonal attraction occurs when someone has physical features indicating that he or she is very fertile. It is a simple theory that relies on the premise that the sole purpose of relationships is reproduction. Because of this people invest in partners who appear to be very "reproductive", which would naturally seem to increase the chance of their genes being passed down to the next generation.
    An obvious weakness to this theory has been the lack of its ability to explain attraction between same-sex couples or attraction between couples who do not want children.

    Evolution of Ethics
    An Introduction to Cybernetic Ethics
    S. E. Bromberg
    Author's note: The following is a summary of concepts found in this book. A simpler, but more precise, explanation of evolutionary ethics can be found in the first four chapters. Other evolutionary ethics web sites are at bottom of the page.
    Important ideas implicit in this book are:
    Science and Ethics Evolutionary Ethics has no (necessary) logical connection to the formal ethics of philosophy. This is to say one does not need to know philosophy to know how ethics have come to be. The words "The Evolution of Ethics" could be more precisly stated as "The Evolution of Ethical Systems." Ethics is best described in scientific terms rather than the contigent and speculative terms of philosophy. Cybernetic Ethics
    Ethics merges with science in cybernetic ethics. This book presents a persuasive theory describing how ethics can (and should) be linked to science and mathematics. Here, there are objective moral standards* that can be derived from the consequences of human actions. The evolution of ethical systems is shown as an "adaptation." Humans adapt to survive and they do so by creating standards and rules of behavior to stop viscous cycles of pain, suffering and death. The more organized and efficient human activities become, the more certain the survival of the species becomes. The science of cybernetics best describes this process. Norbert Wiener first developed cybernetic science in 1947. In this book, cybernetics means "informational feedback in dynamic systems" (such as a social system) that sustains or redirects behaviors.

    Behavior OnLine hosts a forum on Evolutionary Psychology. What follows is an introduction to the topic to orient our participants. You are welcome to join the discussion Behavior OnLine Home Page Behavior OnLine Forums
    James Brody, Ph.D. Adapted Mind , (Oxford, 1992) rests on assumptions that:
  • the human mind is a mosaic of "information processing systems" that are extraordinarily efficient in handling specific kinds of stimuli and responses to them,
  • human evolution has been generally static since the Pleistocene,
  • these systems are "content specific" and generate many invariant aspects of human culture. There are problems and benefits with this view. EP would appear to share the same circular morass of the Instinct Crowd from decades ago. ("Why do we eat cheese?" "It's instinctive." "How do we know it's instinctive?" "Because so many of us do it.") There are two escapes: (1) EP will use hunter-gatherer hypotheses to generate predictions about unstudied, subtle aspects of human performance in cognitive and social tasks. (2) It also tries to weaken the circularity issue by specifying physiological systems that solve an adaptive problem. Rather than assuming the independent evolution of a dozen components that just happen to work well together, EP asks "What adaptive problem is solved? What physiological resources would be needed to solve it? Is it possible that visual and motor systems work so well because their interplay led to fuller bellies at some point long ago?"

    Naked Yoga for Men
    Private Sessions



    Using traditional and contemporary Yogic, Tantric, and Somatic techniques, we learn to liberate, integrate, and celebrate the energy of Eros, which is the lifeblood of creation and transformation. Eros - from the Greek word for 'love' - is used here to mean our innate energy of creation and evolution manifesting as love, sensuality, sexuality, desire, yearning and longing for union. Through yoga postures, movement, breathing, sounding, touch, gazing, relaxation, meditation, and play we embody the energy of Eros, reclaiming innocence and developing maturity simultaneously.
