Evolutionary Psy­cho­­logy and its Problems

The standard claims of evolutionary psychology on the alleged innate mechanisms of the human mind are reviewed and critically dis­cus­sed. It is argued that the principal theses of evolutio­nary psychology are insufficiently support­­ed by empirical facts, and are based on problematic reasoning and oversimplified understanding of the evolutionary the­ory. These claims have not in fact passed the critical discussion of the scientific community, and do not thus constitute genuine scientific knowledge.
