Links this week:

  1. David Barash reviews some books taking an evolutionary perspective on reproduction. (HT: Andrea Castillo)

  2. A cut from the Econtalk interview with Tyler Cowen. Conscientiousness will become more important in response to increasing opportunities for self-improvement.

  3. Behavioural economists did not discover irrationality. And while we’re at it, let’s start calling it behavioural science.

  4. How much species diversity was there at the time of Home erectus? I love it that such a simple yet obvious consideration can completely change the way of looking at something. (HT: Daniel Lende)
