Recently a very popular discipline, evolutionary psychology is situated at the cross-roads of psychology and evolutionary biology, and attempts to identify and explain the basal mechanisms of human behaviour. This course introduces students to the main research objectives of the discipline, focusing on the topics that have been also studied experimentally at the Faculty of Humanities. The course also hosts some lectures of guest speakers.
