Behaviour can be explained in terms of evolutionary influences.
Environment of evolutionary adaptiveness (EEA) - the environment in which any species is adapted to. Only behaviour that ensures survival is adapted.
Evolution has been used to explain how the human mind and behaviour has changed over time. They are adapted to the demands of our individuals environment.
Darwin's natural selection is the idea any genetically determined behaviour that increases survival and reproduction will be passed onto the next generation.
EEA explains why brains are large. They have eveolved, more likely to survive if you can form good relationships and survive in a complex social world.
