Evolutionary Psychology and Its Analogies

(p.192) Chapter Six Evolutionary Psychology and Its Analogies
From Man to Ape
University of Chicago Press

This chapter examines the impact of Darwinian analogies to evolutionary psychology in Argentina. It explains that Darwinian analogies were integrated into preexisting conceptual structures dating back to the early years of the nineteenth century and suggests that the emergence of evolutionary psychology in Argentina served as a particularly useful exemplar of peripheral science. This chapter also discusses the Argentine precursors to evolutionary psychology and analyzes the global political factors that contributed to the emergence of evolutionary psychology.

Keywords:   Darwinian analogies, evolutionary psychology, Argentina, peripheral science, conceptual structures, political factors
