Sex on the brain: some comments on ‘love, war and cultures: An institutional approach to human evolution’

Listed author(s):
  • Geoffrey Hodgson

    ()

Ugo Pagano provides a stimulating account of the grand sweep of human existence on this planet, relying on a few carefully-chosen analytic tools, including the role of sexual selection, brain size, public versus positional goods, and complementarities. But in his telegraphic narrative the compressed language is sometimes misleading or functionalist. Some of the details and current controversies get lost. This comment identifies some of the problems and urges that we should look more closely at the detailed mechanisms involved. Copyright Springer Science+Business Media, LLC. 2013
