Skrócony opis:

This course will examine the mechanisms of the human mind through the lens of evolutionary psychology. We begin with a brief historical review of key theories in psychology and evolutionary biology. We then proceed to substantive topics, including problems of survival, long-term mating, sexuality, parenting, kinship, cooperation, aggression and warfare, conflict between the sexes, status, prestige, and dominance hierarchies. The course concludes by proposing a unified field that integrates the different branches of psychology.

Metody i kryteria oceniania:

Applying EP to a topic

In this assessment, you are required to write a 2,000-word paper, APA formatted and references, that applies evolutionary thinking to your chosen area of research/interested within the larger field of psychology. For example, you might have interest in the development of speaking ability. You would then do research and detail how an evolutionary lens informs the evolution and developmental trajectory of language. You are expected to cite peer-reviewed papers in the area and use them as examples to make your case. In short, the purpose of this assessment is to make the case that applying an evolutionary lens to a given topic leads to novel interpretations and predictions than alternative models.
