Description - Evolutionary Thought in Psychology by Henry Plotkin
This book traces the history of evolutionary thought in psychology in an accessible and lively fashion. The book focuses on the rise of evolutionary theories begun by Lamarck and Darwin and the creation of the science of psychology. Evolutionary thought's banishment in the early 20th century by behaviorism and cultural anthropology is explained, along with its eventual re-emergence through ethology and sociobiology. Evolutionary Thought in Psychology: A Brief History examines the complex and changing relations between psychology and evolutionary theory.
