Links this week:

  1. Hodgson and Knudsen have set up a reading group for their book Darwin’s Conjecture: The Search for General Principles of Social and Economic Evolution. Chapter one has already kicked off.

  2. Another from The Umlaut - Conspicuous Frugality.

  3. Flip-flopping selection pressure in a modern population.

  4. Following from my post on Douglas Kenrick and colleagues' theory of Deep Rationality, below are a couple of short videos - one on How Mating and Self-Protection Motives Alter Loss Aversion, and the other on the upcoming book The Rational Animal: How Evolution Made Us Smarter Than We Think by Kenrick and Vlad Griskevicius, which also looks like it covers similar territory.
