      "This fascinating book by one of the leading primatologists examines the biological foundations of morality as it grows out of primate sociality while remaining within a framework of random natural selection An informative and accessible discussion to an important topic."—David Lorimer, Paradigm Explorer The Primate Origins of Human Nature (Volume 3 in The Foundations of Human Biology series) blends several elements from evolutionary biology as applied to primate behavioral ecology and primate psychology, classical physical anthropology and evolutionary psychology of humans. However, unlike similar books, it strives to define the human species relative to our living and extinct relatives, and

With this background, we can ask what neuroscience and evolution offer to understanding morality and immorality.

    Morality Without Foundations investigates fundamental metaethical questions about the meaning, truth, and justification of moral thought and discourse.

A crucial component of their arguments is a simple but profound aphorism: Everything said is said by someone.

The norms of morality must be by and large consistent with human biological nature, because ethics can only exist in human individuals and in human societies. One might therefore also expect, and it is the case, that accepted norms of morality will often, or at least occasionally, promote behaviors that increase the biological fitness of those Two aspects are discussed: first, the mechanism of learning, and second, the generation of culture and morality.

Both aspects are analyzed in relation to the evolution of the mind-brain system. As to the first aspect, I suggest that the use of the concept of innatism requires a re-examination of the genome-dependent effects on the mind-brain system particularly for what concerns the time scale This book is in much the same vein as the author's earlier book "Darwinism and Human Affairs".

And, according to MAC, it is precisely this collection of cooperative traits—these instincts, intuitions, and institutions—that constitute human :// In his book the Descent of Man (), Charles Darwin observed that evolution had gifted humans a particular trait: the capacity for moral deliberation.
