The essential reference tool for the innovative science of evolutionary psychology

Why is the mind made the way it is? How does input from the environment cooperate with the mind to produce behavior? These are the big, one-sided questions that the field of evolutionary psychology pursues to explore. The Handbook of Evolutionary Psychology, Volume 1: Foundation, 2nd Edition, (PDF) is the seminal work in this vibrant, quickly-developing new discipline. In this comprehensive revision and expansion, luminaries in the field present an in-depth exploration of the foundations of evolutionary psychology and describe the new empirical discoveries and theoretical developments that continue at an incredible pace.

Evolutionary psychologists suggest that the mind has a complex and specialized structure, just as the body has a specialized and complex structure. From this important theoretical concept arises the huge array of possibilities that are at the heart of the field, which seeks to explore such traits as perception, language, and memory from an evolutionary perspective. This examination is aimed to determine the human psychological traits that are the products of natural and sexual selection and, as such to chart and comprehend human nature.
