Evolutionary principles have taught us quite a bit when it comes to human behaviors, all dating back to Darwinian theories. We now know that regardless of someone’s political orientation, we all have an innate attraction to tribal communities. Our minds also still respond to scenarios as if we are living in nomadic tribes with 150 members or less. It has also been proven that no matter where you go, humans tend to show the same expressive emotions and behaviors.
- Evolutionary psychology points to similarities in culture across all civilizations on earth like emotion, tribalism, religion, and art.
- Evolutionary psychology can explain common physical symptoms like nausea in pregnancy and disease pathology in diet.
- There is near universal adoration and support of children across all societies. All civilizations see children as a way of advancing culture.
“The human experience is rich, including such diverse facets such as emotions, health, social relationships, parenting, betrayal, forgiveness, politics, and more.”
