Description - Alas Poor Darwin by Hilary Rose

At the beginning of the 21st century, genes are used to explain almost every aspect of human life, from social inequalities to health, sexuality and criminality. This book offers a criticism of this so-called evolutionary psychology, arguing that it rests on shaky empirical evidence, flawed premises and unexamined political presuppositions. The editors have gathered together some of the most eminent and outspoken critics of this fashionable ideology.
