Summary

Mind Design: The Adaptive Organization of Human Nature, Minds, and Behaviordoes what most books on the subject don’t do. It deals with the “big questions” in psychology and philosophy from an evolutionary neuroscience perspective. This highly readable volume provides a provocative look at the evolutionary origins and neurophysiological underpinnings of mind-including free will, the self, biological origins of the duality of human moral nature, human mate value and mate selection, the sensory/perceptual systems as adaptive virtual reality machines, and the emotions, intelligence, and consciousness as evolved psychological adaptations.
