Kurzbeschreibung

19. Oktober 1995
From reviews of the hardback: "A fascinating book which deserves a wide audience." European Medical Journal "a very significant contribution to the field of evolutionary thinking on human psychology and culture." British Journal of Medical Psychology Researchers have long been aware that the species-typical architecture of the human mind is the product of our evolutionary history, but it has only been in the last three decades that advances in such fields as evolutionary biology, cognitive psychology, and paleoanthropology have been made which have highlighted these changes. This book introduces the newly crystallizing field of evolutionary psychology to a wider scientific audience and focuses on the evolved information-processing mechanisms that comprise the human mind.

Einleitungssatz
Disciplines such as astronomy, chemistry, physics, geology, and biology have developed a robust combination of logical coherence, causal description, explanatory power, and testability, and have become examples of how reliable and deeply satisfying human knowledge can become. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

5.0 von 5 Sternen A fresh start 26. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
The argument - and it is an argument - is that human behaviour is strongly influenced by evolved psychological mechanisms, and that those mechanisms are numerous and specific, rather than just one general learning mechanism - ie a human baby comes with an installed operating system and quite a lot of free software, and is definitely not a blank slate. What makes the argument persuasive is the attempt to import the scientific method - hypotheses falsifiable by experiment - to an area previously characterised by mumbojumbo and pseudoscience. Not all the attempts are successful, but as they say it's a start. 100 years late (for psychology) it is saying (a) the brain is an organ so it must have evolved too - let's think about it in a Darwinian fashion and (b) let's try to make pyschology a science not a humanity. It is potentially very offensive to existing psychology practitioners, because it implies that most existing psychologists are witch doctors. It is also very offensive to large bodies of public policy wonks (let's not beat about the bush here - in American speak this book is very offensive to liberal Democrats), essentially saying that most of the "science" behind social and educational policy has no foundation. And because it is polemical - it is shooting at a century of vested interests after all - it overstates its case in some places, although the writers are usually very careful to stress that while behavioural programmes may be partly pre installed, behaviour itself is not hardwired.
It was the start for me of looking at the way we think in a completely different light and led me to later, more detailed, more balanced statements of the case.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Downsides of this book 19. Dezember 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
As my title indicates, in contrast to the contributors before me, i would like to point out some serious downsides of the book at hand. First though, i want to point out that it definitely is an interesting volume, with some quite important contributions. The downside mentioned above consists of a few articles which are outright bad, in that they either seem overly pan-adaptionistic or/and one cannot help but get the impression listening to a child screaming 'I'm right I'm right I'm right!'. A prime example of this last vice are 2 of the editors themselves, namely Tooby and Cosmides in their introduction article, which sadly clutters the book for already 130 of its about 600 pages. To me, they seem to be a prime example of investigators that badly need to step back for a while from their work, to free their minds and maybe become a little bit more open for contrasting views. Their dogmatic approach is almost ridiculed by their intense attacks on dogmatism they perceive on the side of social scientists.It might be a more promising approach to not inherit the mistakes of ones opponents. An example for pan-adaptionism, among some others, is Mr. Pinker. I don't think he needs further introduction here. He has some valid points, but mainly he relies on rhetoric to make up for missing research. There are some quite valuable articles in the book as well, so for example the one by J.Barkow or the research by Silverman/Eals. They make the book worth reading, if one keeps a keen eye for possible mistakes, overeagerness or unappropriate simplifications. The book rates somewhere between 2 and 3 stars for myself, since i don't believe in excessive superlatives as is often exhibited in these rating systems - meaning, ppl either scoring items with 5 or 1 star.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A watershed work! 6. Mai 1998
Format:Taschenbuch
It would be difficult to exaggerate the importance and uniqueness of this work. It is without question, the most comprehensive, most authoritative, most timely, most compelling, most interdisciplinary book ever written on the topic of evolutionary psychology. Practically all the major exponents of this new science are presented and accounted for (Buss, Symons, Daly & Wilson, Tooby & Cosmides, Barkow and Kaplan). In addition, many qualified and distinguished experts in other fields have made valuable supporting contributions (McGrew, Shepard and Fernald). It already stands as a classic in the field of evolutionary psychology and is destined to be a watershed in the development of psychological thought. However, readers beware: this book is not a light, bedside read. It is dense, scholarly reading. Although enjoyable, it is not appropriate for a lay audience looking for pop-psychology. But if you are a social scientists or serious reader who wishes to know what evolutionary psychology is about, there is simply no other book to read. My only question is when can we look forward to a second volume?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Belated Paradigm Shift for Psychology 4. Januar 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
Excellent scholarship that completely re-oriented my approach to psychology. When I completed my BS in psychology I felt as if I knew next to nothing and couldn't seem to make a coherent framework of it all in my mind. On to my MS in both clinical and organizational psychology and I felt somewhat capable. Thanks to the efforts of these and other evolutionary psychologists, now I can see the forest for the trees. Finally an overarching theoretical framework that allows psychology to fall in line with the biological sciences and become unified. It seems too good to be true...makes you ask why it had never occurred to yourself.....or my professors.....or etc.

Finally, a branch of psychology which does not use the standard psycho-babble which distorted our views of human-kind in the 20th century.
