Abstract

Riane Eisler talks with her husband, social psychologist and Darwin scholar David Loye, about his re-examination of Darwin’s theory of evolution and how and why the role of love, moral sensitivity, mutual aid, and other partnership values has been ignored in most evolutionary narratives, whereas selfishness, violence, and other traits key to imposing and maintaining domination systems have been presented as key to human evolution.
