Emotions, not just decision-making processes, are critical to an evolutionary model of human behavior

  • Glenn E. Weisfeld (a1) and Peter LaFreniere (a2)

Abstract

An evolutionary model of human behavior should privilege emotions: essential, phylogenetically ancient behaviors that learning and decision making only subserve. Infants and non-mammals lack advanced cognitive powers but still survive. Decision making is only a means to emotional ends, which organize and prioritize behavior. The emotion of pride/shame, or dominance striving, bridges the social and biological sciences via internalization of cultural norms.
