"Why do we do what we do?" In this thought-provoking series of lectures, Allen D. MacNeill examines the surprising - and sometimes unsettling - answers to this most basic of human questions. The remarkable new field of evolutionary psychology takes a scientific approach to the evolution of human nature. Analyzing human behavior in relation to food, clothing, shelter, health care, and sex, Evolutionary Psychology proves an immensely stimulating exploration of human endeavor.

Solid stuff well delivered (except for the sad attempts at accents). But... listener beware: the crisp narration often begins a topic with hard science them moves to squishy 'indications' and then onto flights of conjecture that confuse correlation with causation and prescribe campus-fad remedies that frequently conflict with earlier hard-science points made. All this in the same, authoritative, faux-reasonable tone. One must listen carefully to separate the good stuff from the faddish blather. That said, if you can be self-disciplined, this course is worth its cost.
I am a plastic surgeon by profession A father by heart A trader by choice A teacher by passion A child by curiosity
full of insight and makes you start to understand mankind
it realy explains why we are the way we are
so far none
knowledgeable and scientific
Other than stating the obvious,evolutionary psychology is pointless and irrelevant to humanity and history it self.Great book.
I really think the lecturer presents quite complex concepts well. I have learnt such a lot, and will apply to the science of climate change.... that is, why do we pollute our planet?
