I don't doubt that people can find evolutionary explanations for
everything even if they need to scrape deep in the bowl of
imagination... But my personal philosophy is always that some of our
characteristics and behaviors are simply emergent from other (possibly
evolved) ones. Why do so many people seem to skip this possibility
everytime they are speaking about human psychology?
