Nice Rebuttal of Pop Evolutionary Psychology

By way of Pandagon, I came across this good rebuttal by David J. Buller of evolutionary psychology. He’s certainly nicer about it than I am, since I think much of EP exists to justify middle-aged faculty sleeping with their younger graduate students. As the kids say, read the whole thing.

  1. Michael Meadon – Michael Meadon is a graduate student in cognitive science at the University of KwaZulu Natal in Durban, South Africa. When he's not procrastinating online or propitiating his wife, he investigates the effects of rapid & unreflective facial judgments on political elections. He expects to graduate any decade now. When he was an innocent undergrad Michael studied Politics, Philosophy & Economics at the University of Cape Town. Unfortunately, he had to find out for himself that "social" and "science" often don't go so well together.

    I don’t usually read your blog, so I don’t know whether you’re just being facetious, but isn’t that just a touch unfair? There is plenty of controversy about the philosophical implications of eve psych, but I pretty much agree with Janet Radcliffe Richards in Human Nature After Darwin that there just aren’t any… (and that’s pretty much what evolutionary psychologists themselves think).
