Evolutionary Thought in Psychology: A Brief History, traces the history of evolutionary thought in psychology in an accessible and lively fashion and examines the complex and changing relations between psychology and evolutionary theory.

This is the first book to trace the history of evolutionary thinking in psychology from its beginnings to the present day in an accessible and lively fashion, focusing on the rise of evolutionary theories begun by Lamarck and Darwin and the creation of the science of psychology. The book explains evolutionary thought’s banishment by behaviorism and cultural anthropology in the early 20th century, along with its eventual re-emergence through ethology and sociobiology and examines the complex and changing relations between psychology and evolutionary theory.
