Discussion on 'The evolutionary genetics of personality' by Penke, Denissen and Miller

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

Penke et al. (this issue) attempt to explain personality and cognition from theory rather than empirical study. This overstates the constraints on evolution, while underestimating the power of cross-species HapMap data to directly identify our evolutionary history. Independent of armchair-speculation, information benefiting human understanding, health and well-being is flowing from exactly the research the target suggests should not be pursued.
