Evolutionary psychology is the application of evolutionary theory, first proposed by Charles Darwin, to the study of human behavior and the brain that generates our thoughts, feelings and actions. Evolutionary psychology is not a sub discipline within the field of psychology, like developmental or clinical psychology, but rather an approach to behavior that can be applied in psychology and, for that matter, in other disciplines like anthropology, economics and political science.
