I’d also suggest “The Moral Animal” I forget the author now, but that was well written. It’s a field that’s taking off again. Evo. Psych and Socio., I mean. Talk about throwing out the baby with the bathwater after social Darwinism.

For anyone interested in learning about the evolution of the human mind, I would suggest the Evolution of Consciousness by Robert Ornstein. It is a great read.

Here is an interview of the author on youtube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCPAYuKp9l0

 

Best,

Jeff
