Darwin at the Supermarket

What is the function of pain? Is everybody homosexual? Do we discriminate against our children? Why are young prostitutes more successful than older ones? Why do appreciative audiences all over the world clap their hands? And were we once all black?

A serious study tempered with humour and self-effacement, this book makes the connection between insights from Darwin’s theory of evolution and our everyday behaviour. Nelissen’s starting points are observations on the street, in the train, during meetings or family gatherings, or gleaned from newspapers and other media. After posing leading questions and finding apposite answers he goes on to make clear and credible the idea that our distant ancestors’ genes still lie at the root of the decisions we make and the things we do.

Darwin in the Supermarket or how evolution influences our behaviour daily' is made up of short texts, distilling the science into manageable portions. The author continually speaks to his readers and integrates their responses into his text by concurring with or contradicting them. This rhetorical strategy makes what he writes all the more convincing.
