Stone Age Minds

This video is very interesting and involves two prominent evolutionary psychologists, Leda Cosmides and John Tooby, talking about many aspects of the field. They cover a little bit about their history in the field, history about the actual field, the paradigm of evolutionary psychology, and some implications for our society. One thing that I found the most interesting is when they begin to talk about the human mind and the self made matrix we all have that we call reality. They explain that of course there is an outside world but everything we perceive and experience basically is self made because it's just the brain interpreting new information.
