Darwin’s theory of evolution & a contemporary topic in psychology

Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection and related developments have exerted a profound influence on psychology. Today there is a recognized field known as evolutionary psychology that embodies how Darwin’s ideas have a role in our understanding of such psychological topics as memory, perception, emotion, language, social interactions, morality, personality, altruism, mental health, and many more. Choose a contemporary topic in psychology (not a field nor a school of thought, but rather a sharply focused topic that has practical implications) and show how it can be explained according to principles of evolution (e.g., natural selection, adaptability etc.) Will upload powerpoints later to help
