The field of evolutionary psychology has engendered no small amount of controversy by investigating the adaptations underlying some of humans’ most objectionable behaviors: racial discrimination, psychopathic deception, infanticide, murder, warfare, and rape. This talk will provide an overview of the field, with a focus on the evolutionary research on rape and murder and the reception it has received in academic circles.
