Overview

Monkeys and apes use their intelligence to manipulate and outmanoeuvre others socially. The 'Machiavellian Intelligence Hypothesis' implies that it was for these social purposes that intelligence first developed, and was brought to fruition in humans. In 1988, Machiavellian Intelligence provided the groundwork for these ideas: in Machiavellian Intelligence II, they are evaluated empirically, and extended in many new directions. The book will be essential reading for all those interested in the behavioural sciences, primatology and evolution.
