9780099288244: The Mating Mind: How Sexual Choice Shaped the Evolution of Human Nature: How Sexual Choice Shaped Human Nature
Review:

Many aspects of the human mind remain mysterious. While Darwinian natural selection can explain the evolution of most life on earth, it has never seemed fully adequate to explain the aspects of our minds that seem most uniquely and profoundly human - art, morality, consciousness, creativity and language. Yet these aspects of human nature need not remain evolutionary mysteries. Until fairly recently most biologists have ignored or rejected Darwin's claims for the other great force of evolution - sexual selection through mate choice, which favours traits simply because they prove attractive to the opposite sex. But over recent years biologists have taken up Darwin's insights into how the reproduction of the sexiest is as much a focus of evolution as the survival of the fittest. Witty, powerfully-argued and continually thought-provoking, Miller's cascade of ideas bears comparison with such critical books as Richard Dawkins' The Selfish Gene and Steven Pinker's The Language Instinct. It is a landmark in our understanding of our own species.

Review:

"Intriguing... The discussion of the mind as a mechanism of attracting mates is fascinating" ( Washington Post Book World)

"A refined, an intellectually ingenious, and a very civilised discussion of the possible importance of sexual selection for mental evolution" (John Constable, Cambridge University Psychology, Evolution, and Gender)

"Entertaining and wide-ranging" ( Nerve)

"Flies in the face of evolutionary orthodoxy - proposed by Stephen Jay Gould and others - which suggests that cultures evolve on their own, separate from the evolution of the human mind" ( Observer)

"Thoughtful, witty and vividly written" (Richard Dawkins)
