NEEPS conference at New Paltz, NY

Since Thursday I have been in New Paltz, NY (for the first time), attending the annual meeting of the NorthEastern Evolutionary Psychology Society (NEEPS) (for the first time. It has been a great experience. It is so great to be in a large group of people, all of whom agree that seeing the world evolutionary eyes is where its at. And New Paltz is one cool, funky college town.

Sounds interesting! I confess, I'm generally a little suspicious of evolutionary psych... but I hope you brought home some nifty ideas.

It's fine to be skeptical about evolutionary psychology. In fact, evolutionary psychologists, like all good scientists, encourage skepticism about everything. To properly evaluate the discipline, it is important to read primary sources rather than second-hand accounts. A good recent article that discusses controversies in evol psych can be found here: http://homepage.psy.utexas.edu/homepage/Group/BussLAB/pdffiles/evolutionary_psychology_AP_2010.pdf
