Rosen and Luebbert have edited a collection providing a diverse sampling of theoretical and scientific approaches to understanding important markers connected with the evolution of the psyche. Markers from our evolutionary path can be discerned in the structure of the human brain, in our similarities to our infrahuman ancestors, and in contemporary behaviors that, as the essays make clear, continue to serve purposes best understood in our original environment of evolutionary adaptedness.
Written by some of the leading investigators in this field, they show why evolutionary psychology is the most useful paradigm for overcoming the current disintegration of the psychological sciences. All those with an interest in the origin of the human mind will find this book enlightening. It is an important collection for students, scholars, and other researchers of the psyche.
