Evolutionary psychology (EP) is an approach to the study of the mind that is founded on Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection. It assumes that our cognitive abilities, emotions, and preferences are specifically adapted for solving problems of survival and reproduction in the Paleolithic environment in which humanity evolved. It derives testable predictions from this assumption, including the conditions that support human well-being.
