Social, Machiavellian and cultural cognition : a golden age of discovery in comparative and evolutionary psychology
MetadataShow full item record
The years since the publication of Machiavellian Intelligence have witnessed a Golden Age in discoveries concerning social cognition in human and non-human primates and many other animal taxa too. Here I briefly dissect some of the variants of the social intelligence hypotheses that have evolved in this time and offer a selective overview of scientific discoveries in this field, particularly in primates, over the last 30 years.
