Psychological Sex Differences: Origins through Sexual Selection.
Buss, David M.
American Psychologist, v50 n3 p164-68 Mar 1995
Outlines an explanatory framework for psychological sex differences, one that is anchored in the new theoretical paradigm of evolutionary psychology. This paradigm rejects the dichotomy between biology and environment and provides a new metatheory of why sex differences exist, where they exist, and in what contexts they are expressed. (GR)
