Evolution and the mating game

Evolutionary psychologist David BussEvolutionary psychologist David Buss says the very different ways that men and women pursue each other today stem from thousands of years of human evolution. Buss will speak on “Strategies of Human Mating” at 5 p.m. Jan. 26 in the Hughes-Trigg Student Center Ballroom.

Buss, head of the Individual Differences and Evolutionary Psychology program at UT-Austin, will discuss how jealousy, dating and mating are products of evolutionary needs. He is the author of such books as Sex, Power, Conflict: Evolutionary and Feminist Perspectives and The Dangerous Passion: Why Jealousy Is As Necessary As Love and Sex.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Pia Vogel, 214-786-1790.
