This chapter will cover the politics of human nature by using evidence from history, anthropology, and social psychology. Policies derived from a false view of human nature—such as economic policies based on nineteenth-century philosophy—are highly likely to fail. A unified view of human nature that integrates proximate and ultimate evolutionary perspectives is necessary to better explain human behavior and its relationship to economics and public policy.
