Darwinian ideas in research and scholarship

Recent years have seen immensely productive applications of Darwinian ideas in anthropology, economics, social psychology, linguistics, history, politics, legal theory, and criminology, as well as the philosophical study of rationality, theology, and value theory.
Denis Dutton, 2009.

Following Charles Darwin, Denis Dutton underlines that human culture and artistic creativity—although outstanding and immensely complex—do not happen isolated from evolution.

Keywords: evolution, psychology, arts, science, human nature.
