Editor's Selections: Living Dangerously, Cognition, Heritability, and Irrational Behaviors


This week in the social sciences:
  • Tim De Chant explains why humans tend to settle in dangerous places.
  • The host of Serious Monkey Business considers the evolutionary benefits of cognition in group settings.
  • Jeremy Yoder discusses the difference between heritability and heritable.
  • Jason Collins maintains that humans aren't irrational - in most cases, anyway. Rather, they're subject to time inconsistencies.
I'll be back next Thursday with more selections from the social sciences!
