Εthology, Evolutionary Psychology, Sociobiology, and Evolutionary Psychiatry

  • Kostas N. Fountoulakis


Sociology, ethology, and sociobiology are disciplines that deal with the interplay between biological factors and social behavior and the development of human society and civilization from a Darwinian evolutionary perspective. This chapter discusses the basic principles behind these scientific disciplines and their contribution to our knowledge concerning human behavior and human societies by describing fundamental mechanisms and processes.
