A Moderate Evolutionary Psychology

I defend a moderate, evidential form of evolutionary psychology that is not prey to the concerns raised by the critics of other forms of evolutionary psychology, and which can still add much of value to discussions in psychology, social science, and philosophy. This moderate form is arrived at through scaling back the aims of the project—namely, towards providing only partial evolutionary biological analyses of a given psychological phenomenon—and through showing how a compelling but moderate form of evolutionary psychology can be gotten off the ground—namely, by using all of the relevant pieces of information about a given psychological trait.
