Description

The human mind and the behaviour that emerges as products of the mind, will be considered as the outcome of a large number of adaptations brought about by natural selection. The possibility of, and evidence for, a universal human nature at the level of evolved psychological mechanisms will be presented. The evolutionary significance of altruism, cooperation and conflict, morality, deceit, self-deception and illness will be examined.
