Course Description

Human behavior, with special emphasis on adaptiveness, and viewed in relation to three evolutionary perspectives on psychology are presented: how we are behaviorally similar to other species, especially those close to us, how we are uniquely different from other species, and behavioral trends in the evolutionary line that led to our species. A sample of particular topics is: development, motivation (including mating and aggression), emotion, perception, cognition, social behavior, and personality. Coverage will include both adaptations and tendencies that may have no adaptive utility, but are part of what we are as a species.
