My guests today are Douglas Kenrick and David Lundberg-Kenrick, a father and son team.

Douglas Kenrick is a professor of psychology at Arizona State University. His research and writing integrate three scientific syntheses of the last few decades: evolutionary psychology, cognitive science, and dynamical systems theory. He is the author of over 170 scientific articles, books, and book chapters, the majority applying evolutionary ideas to human cognition and behavior.

David Lundberg-Kenrick is the Media Outreach Program Manager at Arizona State University. He creates multimedia supplements for psychology textbooks, produced and edited videos for use in psychology experiments, and worked on documentaries about evolutionary psychology, including the BBC's "The Science of Seduction" and his current project "The Caveman Goes to Hollywood."

The topic is their book Solving Modern Problems With a Stone-Age Brain: Human Evolution and the Seven Fundamental Motives.

In this episode of Trend Following Radio we discuss:

  • Violence
  • Dangers of stone-age problem solving
  • A new and systematic way to survive and be happy in the modern world
  • Wealth inequality
  • Our different motives
  • The revised pyramid of human needs
