You may think of people as products of Darwin’s natural and sexual selection, optimised for survival and reproductive success, but much seems to have gone wrong. We can think logically but often don’t, we behave sympathetically towards others, but we also hate and hurt them, we manifest dozens of biases, and behave morally and immorally. We are both brave and fearful, honest but also deceitful, credulous but sceptical, conscious of some things but unconscious of others. There are both the traditional conflicts between the sexes and the more recent recognition of a spectrum of sexuality versus categories. This series of lectures covers the human psyche from an evolutionary perspective and in doing so, endeavours to provide explanations for these contradictions and puzzles.

Thursdays 1 October to 29 October (5 sessions)
