The Evolution and Economics of Human Relationships

Hour 1:           Which social behaviors and human customs are actually holdovers from our evolutionary predecessors and closest genetic relatives? We’ll find out this hour with Dario Maestripieri, professor of comparative human development, evolutionary biology, neurobiology, and behavioral neuroscience at the University of Chicago. His new book is “Games Primates Play: An Undercover Investigation of the Evolution and Economics of Human Relationships” (Basic Books, 2012).
