Die von Thilo Sarrazin heraufbeschworenen Untergangsszenarien sind uralt. Schon im vorletzten Jahrhundert waren es angeblich die „Falschen“, die am meisten Kinder bekamen: Ungebildete, Unterschichten und Volksfremde. Doch die befürchtete Degeneration blieb aus; die offene, moderne Gesellschaft erwies sich als leistungsfähiges Erfolgsmodell. Worin liegt die Popularität der Sarrazin-Thesen begründet? Der vorliegende Sammelband diskutiert aus Sicht verschiedener Wissenschaftsdisziplinen die Behauptung, in modernen Gesellschaften finde eine Gegenauslese zu Gunsten der „Dummen“ statt. Die Autoren weisen dieser inzwischen weit verbreiteten Argumentation zahlreiche Fehler und Missverständnisse nach. Sie zeigen, dass die von Sarrazin angestoßene Debatte um eugenische Ideen kreist und sich zu weiten Teilen auf dubiose Forschungsergebnisse eines internationalen Zitierkartells stützt.

Inspired by the progressive and humanistic origins of psychoanalysis, Lewis Aron and Karen Starr pursue Freud's call for psychoanalysis to be a psychotherapy for the people. They present a cultural history focusing on how psychoanalysis has always defined itself in relation to an other. At first, that other was hypnosis and suggestion; later it was psychotherapy. The authors trace a series of binary oppositions, each defined hierarchically, which have plagued the history of psychoanalysis. Tracing reverberations of racism, anti-Semitism, misogyny, and homophobia, they show that psychoanalysis, associated with phallic masculinity, penetration, heterosexuality, autonomy, and culture, was defined in opposition to suggestion and psychotherapy, which were seen as promoting dependence, feminine passivity, and relationality.

This book attempts to understand an ancient people in terms of modern evolutionary biology. A basic idea is that Judaism is a group evolutionary strategy-what one might term an evolutionarily significant way for a group of people to get on in the world. The book documents several theoretically interesting aspects of group evolutionary strategies using Judaism as a case study. These topics include the theory of group evolutionary strategies, the genetic cohesion of Judaism, how Jews managed to erect and enforce barriers to gene flow between themselves and other peoples, resource competition between Jews and non-Jews, how Jews managed to have a high level of charity within their communities and at the same time prevented free-riding, how some groups of Jews came to have such high IQ's, and how Judaism developed in antiquity. This book was originally published in 1994 by Praeger Publishers. The Writers Club edition contains a new preface, Diaspora Peoples, describing several interesting group evolutionary strategies: The Gypsies, the Hutterites and Amish, the Calvinists and Puritans, and the Overseas Chinese.

Atran argues that religion is a by-product of human evolution just as the cognitive intervention, cultural selection, and historical survival of religion is an accommodation of certain existential and moral elements in the human condition.

Evolutionary Perspectives on Human Development, Second Edition considers the role of evolutionary theory in the field of developmental psychology to examine key topics of individual human development. This unique book fills an important gap in the literature, applying evolutionary models to human development by focusing on central development issues. The book emphasizes both domain-general evolved psychological mechanisms and domain-specific processes. The text also integrates behavior-genetic research with evolutionary and developmental principles. Evolutionary Perspectives on Human Development provides state-of-the-art groundwork in evolutionary theory as viewed by leading thinkers in the field.
