Unknown boundaries : exploring human evolutionary studies by Robert Foley( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The past twenty years have seen a resurgence of interest in human evolution in many aspects. A distinction can be made between 'narrow' (general acceptance that human evolution occurred, historically) and 'broad' (evolutionary ideas that stretch much further into all aspects of humanity, past and present) human evolution. The broad perspective is beginning to make its presence felt, for example, through the developments in evolutionary genetics, evolutionary psychology and behavioural ecology. There must, therefore be, among the variety of human adaptations, natures and behaviours, phenomena which are not susceptible to an evolutionary analysis, which are beyond the bounds of evolution. The problem is, however, that we do not really know where that boundary lies. Here, the limits of human evolution are explored by using two approaches: first, finding where humans 'fit' the expectations of evolutionary principles; and second, applying evolutionary methods to particular human contexts, while looking for an evolutionary signal. By following this approach not only will the scope and limits of evolution be mapped, but evolution will return as the main framework for anthropology."--Jacket

Human biologists in the archives : demography, health, nutrition, and genetics in historical populations by Alan C Swedlund( )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation Many physical anthropologists study populations using data that come primarily from the historical record. For this volume's authors, the classic anthropological 'field' is not the glamour of an exotic locale, but the sometimes tedium of the dusty back rooms of libraries, archives and museum collections. This book tells of the way in which archival data inform anthropological questions about human biology and health. The authors present a diverse array of human biological evidence from a variety of sources including the archaeological record, medical collections, church records, contemporary health and growth data and genetic information from the descendants of historical populations. The papers demonstrate how the analysis of historical documents expands the horizons of research in human biology, extends the longitudinal analysis of microevolutionary and social processes into the present and enhances our understanding of the human condition
