        This year's Darwin Lecture by:

        Dr Andrew Dunn and Professor Thom Baguley

        What's not to like about Human Evolutionary Psychology?

        Evolutionary psychology has grown rapidly in the last 30 years or so from being a niche area of research when applied to humans to being a mainstream

        area of research with several journals, numerous research centres and a number of star researchers. In spite of this, the subdiscipline remains

        controversial, both in and related fields such as human biology.

        We begin with a brief history of evolutionary psychology followed by a snapshot of major theories and key figures. We will argue that evolutionary psychology

        faces three fundamental problems: a weak connection to evolutionary theory, an unhealthy focus on an insular set of popular, media-friendly theories

        (e.g., on sexual strategies in mating) and a preponderance of questionable research practices. We conclude by suggesting that this is an acute rather than

        chronic problem, not atypical of new disciplines, and provide examples of recent work that indicates that evolutionary psychology is beginning to

        resolve these problems.

        at the Canal House, 48-52 Canal Street, Nottingham.

Campaigning locally for a Secular Britain.

Who we are and what we believe:

We are a group of people based in and around the Nottingham area who support the idea of a secular society, in which people of all religions, and none, should be treated equally.

We support the Charter of the National Secular Society and meet regularly to discuss secular issues; listen to guest speakers; organise campaigns, have debates and the occasional social evening.

Secularism Protects:

We are not anti-religion. We oppose discrimination against religions and discrimination by religions equally but we believe that religion is a private matter for individuals and that the privileged position of religious organisations and the self-interest of religious leaders is one that should be challenged.
