Book description

The nature/nurture question is an age-old problem. Beyond Evolutionary Psychology deals with the relation between culture, evolution, psychology and emotion, based both in the underlying biology, determined by our evolutionary heritage, and in the interaction of our brain with the physical, ecological and social environment, based in the key property of brain plasticity. Ellis and Solms show how the brain structures that underlie cognition and behaviour relate to each other through developmental processes guided by primary emotional systems. This makes very clear which brain modules are innate or 'hard-wired', and which are 'soft-wired' or determined through environmental interactions. The key finding is that there can be no innate cognitive modules in the neocortex, as this is not possible on both developmental and genetic grounds; in particular there can be no innate language acquisition device. This is essential reading for students and scholars of evolutionary psychology and evolutionary biology.


‘The work is a tour de force in the area of culture, evolution, psychology and emotion, and in short is brilliant. Ellis and Solms have synthesized and integrated large, disparate areas of scholarship and have developed an insightful and amazingly thought-provoking theoretical framework that is entirely new. I especially liked the focus on language, as tackling the potential innateness versus learned aspect of it is persuasive and strategically sound.'

David Matsumoto - San Francisco State University

‘This is a fascinating and timely book that emerges as lively debates are taking place. Ellis and Solms's highly novel and empirically grounded theorizing about the development of language and cognition has broader implications for facile popular notions such as a ‘triune brain' or evolutionary-based intuitionist accounts of the role of emotion in morality and everyday cognition.'

Larry Nucci - University of California, Berkeley

‘George Ellis and Mark Solms's book is one of the more forceful, sustained explanations of the origins of the cognitive accomplishments of Homo sapiens available. They offer a more balanced and scientific understanding of human cognitive evolution than either the radical nativism of Evolutionary Psychology or Chomskyan linguistics. All cognitive scientists, anthropologists, psychologists and philosophers should have this book on their shelves.'
