Description

Following an introduction by Jessica Tracy, University of British Columbia, Jonathan Haidt, New York University Stern School of Business presents an overview on Leda Cosmides and Joe Henrich, who have taken different approaches to understanding culture and the interplay of genetic evolution with cultural and environmental factors. Session: Big Questions in Evolutionary Science and what they mean for Social-Personality Psychology In recent years, a number of evolutionary scientists have sought to incorporate cultural evolutionary processes into models of genetic evolution. Here, major proponents of genetic, cultural, and gene-culture co-evolutionary approaches will explain the central ideas behind these varied models, and will discuss implications of these contrasting views for social-personality psychology. This invited session was held as part of the 2016 Society for Personality and Social Psychology Annual Convention.
