How Can Understanding Human Evolutionary Psychology Help Prevent Domestic Violence?

Mon, October 17, 2011

"Conflict between the sexes is a pervasive problem in many social relationships. It becomes especially acute in mating relationships. Humans, unlike most species, have evolved long-term mating strategies marked by high levels of investment, commitment, and love. Long-term mating could not have evolved without adaptations to guard or protect these investments."
-- psychology professor David Buss, in Science and Religion Today
