Human Mating Behavior: An Evolutionary Perspective

Human Mating Behavior: An Evolutionary Perspective

Dr. David Buss
Psychology Professor
The University of Texas at Austin

If we all want love, why is there so much conflict in our most cherished relationships? What is evolutionary psychology and how can it provide insights to human mating behavior? Dr. Buss shares insights on how conflict, competition, and manipulation pervade human mating. Dr. Buss is signing his newest book "The Evolution of Desire" from 5:45 - 6:30 during Cool Activities. The UT Coop will have books for sale at the signing.

Due to the content of this talk, we recommend it for high school seniors, college students and adults only.
