Title On life history evolution (a comment on Chisholm)
Date 1994-01-01
Description Chisholm (CA 34:I-24) is right that the theory, models, and data of evolutionary biology apply to questions asked by social scientists. Work in life-history theory (Stearns 1992, Roff 1992, Charnov 1993) has especially provocative implications for the understanding of human development (see review in Hill 1922a). has especially provocative implications for the understanding of human development (see review in Hill 1992a). But Chisholm's paper contains much to mislead. I choose for attention the issues surrounding his equation of "fast" life-history strategies and high mating effort, on one hand and 'slow' life-history strategies and high parental effort, on the other. Not only is this equation wrong, but it confuses some of the most surprising implications of recent work.
