Aggregating Skeptical Thought

The Mind and Evolution, 2007-02-27

The Mind and Evolution, is a great article on being skeptical about the application of evolutionary psychology. I have always been a little wary of the application of evolutionary psychology however I don’t know much about psychology beyond entry-level college courses so I’ve always chalked up my skepticism to my lack of understanding. I guess I’m not alone.

I can see how this discipline could be used to understand general or group behaviors but to apply it to individual cases just doesn’t *feel right*. How’s that for science 😉
