Psychology Speaker Series kicks off with Darwinian Theory presentation

Charles Darwin

Charles Darwin

Students studying biology and anthropology will be among those interested in the first presentation in the Psychology Department Speaker Series.

In “Modern Application of Darwinian Theory to Psychology,” Todd Shackelford, Oakland University’s psychology department chairman, will show how Darwinian selection has become the centerpiece of biology and how many psychologists and anthropologists have used evolutionary perspective to guide their work. He’ll review the instrument of evolution: natural selection, the products of evolution, and the impact of evolutionary thinking on modern psychological science. He will also introduce how evolutionary psychology will emerge as a guiding theory for all of psychology.

The free lecture runs from 1-2:30 p.m. October 20 in room 168 of the ATC . To see the other topics and speakers in this year’s series, click here.
