The Moral Animal: Why We Are the Way We Are

Subtitled: The New Science of Evolutionary Psychology

An accessible introduction to the science of evolutionary psychology
and how it explains many aspects of human nature. Unlike many books on
the topic,which focus on abstractions like kin selection, this book focuses
on Darwinian explanations of why we are the way we are–emotionally and
morally. Wright deals particularly well with explaining the reasons for
the stereotypical dynamics of the three big “S’s:” sex, siblings, and society.
