The Adapted mind : evolutionary psychology and the generation of culture by Jerome H Barkow( )

31 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 2,302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although researchers have long been aware that the species-typical architecture of the human mind is the product of our evolutionary history, it has only been in the last three decades that advances in such fields as evolutionary biology, cognitive psychology, and paleoanthropology have made the fact of our evolution illuminating. Converging findings from a variety of disciplines are leading to the emergence of a fundamentally new view of the human mind, and with it a new framework for the behavioral and social sciences. First, with the advent of the cognitive revolution, human nature can finally be defined precisely as the set of universal, species-typical information-processing programs that operate beneath the surface of expressed cultural variability. Second, this collection of cognitive programs evolved in the Pleistocene to solve the adaptive problems regularly faced by our hunter-gatherer ancestors - problems such as mate selection, language acquisition, co-operation, and sexual infidelity. Consequently, the traditional view of the mind as a general-purpose computer, tabula rasa, or passive recipient of culture is being replaced by the view that the mind resembles an intricate network of functionally specialized computers, each of which imposes contentful structure on human mental organization and culture. The Adapted Mind explores this new approach - evolutionary psychology - and its implications for a new view of culture

Missing the revolution : Darwinism for social scientists by Jerome H Barkow( )

24 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The naturalizing perspective of Darwinian thought has become one of the major intellectual currents of our time, pervading contemporary understandings of human nature and society. Unfortunately, many social scientists in sociology, psychology, and sociocultural anthropology have failed to engage with it. Barkow asks his fellow social scientists to put aside their all-too-common preconceptions and stereotypes of the "biological" and to consider a powerful argument that is far different from that of those who once invoked a vocabulary of genes and Darwin as a justification for genocide. He argues that the theoretical perspective that has been so successful when applied to the behavior of every other animal speicies can be applied just as successfully to our own, and that the real debate is about how to apply it."--Jacket
