Empirical Evidence on Psychopathy as a Life History Strategy

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

One selectionist or evolutionary account of psychopathy posits that it comprises a frequency dependent life history strategy. Such distal or ultimate accounts are not, in general, in competition with proximal hypotheses that invoke genetic, neurocognitive, or affective explanations. This presentation will briefly describe life history theory and its role in elucidating psychopathy. Several empirical tests of this selectionist account will be presented. These will include psychopathy and neurodevelopmental perturbations and fluctuating asymmetry; and psychopathy and sexual behavior among sex offenders. The possibility that psychopathy does not meet the “harmful dysfunction” definition of mental disorder (Wakefield, 1992) will also be discussed.
