As far as we know, humans are the only species that actively researches what makes themselves tick. Since the publication of E.O. Wilson's Sociobiology 35 years ago, that inclination has become a downright obsession, spawning a daunting proliferation of new explorations in evolutionary psychology and related fields. Ranking high in these efforts is Douglas Kenrick's Sex, Murder, and the Meaning of Life, which draws on not only evolutionary psychology, but also on cognitive science, social psychology, and complexity theory to make striking conclusions. Each chapter spotlights the answer to a question: How did an innocent young student accidentally fall in with a band of intellectual revolutionaries? When is godliness just another reproductive strategy? Why do men and women forget different people and regret different things?
