H. Allen Orr reviews Matt Ridley's The Origins of Virtue:

Theory of Options : An original hypothesis on the evolution of human behavior. Why is the human brain so large? Pre-humans survived with a much smaller brain. Why if fitness favors individuals, did humans evolve morality, which favors groups?

Evolutionary Theories in the Social Sciences : The notion that Darwinian forces may drive the way organizations operate and how societies evolve has become a hot research area. This site aims to bring this field together with book reviews, journal links, a forum, and conference updates.

Great Ideas in Personality: Evolutionary psychology is an evolutionary approach to human nature. Attachment Theory is also grounded in certain evolutionary ideas, and Behavior Genetics is a field concerned with all-important evolutionary mechanisms–genes.
