A central aspect of human adaptation - reproductive behaviour - is studied through the multiple lenses of philosophy, biology, psychology and anthropology, all united by an evolutionary perspective. Although reproduction is an intrinsic mechanism of evolution, this colloquium shows that reproductive behaviours yield new significance for evolution theory when re-examined in a multidisciplinary setting. This volume focuses on explication of the adaptive, evolved nature of our own reproduction with topics such as how mate choice shaped human nature; symmetry in mate selection; the evolution of moral dispositions; and the sexist order of the bonobos. This look at reproduction as a mechanism of human evolution reveals underlying physiologic mechanisms, as well as comparative and interesting cross-cultural aspects that emerge from social sciences and anthropology.
