Hinde, Robert A.
Child Development, v62 n4 p671-75 Aug 1991
Comments on Belsky, Steinberg, and Draper's article in this issue. Offers three likely reasons for adaptation of human behavior. Argues that Belsky, et al. use only two of these reasons in their proposed evolutionary theory of socialization. Suggests that an evolutionary approach is useful if it integrates diverse facts, aids clinical practice, and helps us fully understand human nature. (GLR)
