“From the rational soul to human cognitive uniqueness: Psychology’s ambiguous response to evolution”
Psychology began as the part of philosophy concerning the soul. Scientific psychology is still struggling to abandon this historical legacy. I will explain the multiple ways in which psychology remains unjustifiably anthropocentric. I will also review and defend the empirical developments bringing about a scientific psychology that is fully consistent with basic evolutionary principles
