Did the Victim Deserve to Die?
Darwin Goes to Court
This chapter argues that although there are few judges, civil litigators, criminal defense lawyers, prosecutors, and clinicians familiar with evolutionary psychology, this will change as evolutionary psychology becomes part of mainstream psychology. It discusses the case of Willie, a 19-year-old single man who, with his 17-year-old half-brother Steve, killed his father. It also considers cases involving rape and sexual coercion, domestic violence, and slip-up versus homicide adaptation.
