Abstract

For nearly four decades, evolutionary anthropologists have been actively applying modern evolutionary theory to the analysis of human behavior, language, and culture. Their research appeals to a growing number of practitioners from across the social and behavioral sciences whose work spans a broad spectrum of perspectives, from behavioral ecology to evolutionary psychology and cultural evolution. Although their perspectives diverge, these scholars have stressed the message that cultural diversity must be taken seriously.
