Cavalcade of evolutionary psychology continues!
Over at Echidne. I've never liked Steven Pinker, ever since I read some of his stuff in a class I took back in college on evolution. Stephen Jay Gould referred to the work of evolutionary psychologists as 'Just So stories', and the 'research' these people turn out really is pretty craptacular. Steven Pinker is somewhat better than a lot of these lunatics -- but that's not saying much.
