Evolutionary Studies: Darwin’s Roadmap to the Curriculum, in contract with Oxford University Press, is designed primarily to provide a broad, rich, and deep set of chapters that (a) explicate how evolutionary principles help elucidate content across varied academic areas (including both examples of how evolutionary principles have helped lead to new ideas and how the evolutionary approach has led to interdisciplinary scholarly endeavors) and (b) apply evolutionary principles to several real-world issues (such as education, mental health, etc.).
