Evolutionary Psychology is a modern form of approaching human behavior. In some circles, Evolutionary Psychology's broad claims have become a controversial topic. This public debate at Binghamton University discusses Evolutionary Psychology's merits in terms of both its scientific validity and moral and ethical implications. Debaters will touch on biological determinism and essentialism from a feminist literature base, but will also be drawing upon racial and other intersectional thinkers.
On the side of Evolutionary Psychology: Trevor Reddick & Rafi Schulman
On the side of Feminist Critique: Daniel Friedman & Lenny Herrera
