Biografie (woord)

Steve Stewart-Williams is an Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Nottingham, Malaysia Campus. His research and writing revolve around the idea that theories from evolutionary biology can shed light on the human mind and behavior, focusing especially on sex differences and altruism. He also has a long-standing interest in the philosophical implications of evolutionary theory. His first book, Darwin, God and the Meaning of Life (Cambridge), was published in 2010.

Quote

'A strength of the book is its writing style. The book is written with verve. It's playful, lighthearted, crisp, fast-paced, and yet accurate and concise. A reader can distill the basic foundations and examples of evolutionary psychology and cultural evolutionary theory here while enjoying the ride (read) … I would recommend the book over older popular treatments of evolutionary psychology or, say, Dawkins's 1976 classic The Selfish Gene.' Peter Gray, Human Nature
