differences between Evolutionary Psychology a la Cosmides and Tooby and
the traditional sociobiological approaches associated with Wilson,
Alexander, Dawkins, et al? I have read the popular press accounts such
as the Newsweek feature story, etc. I also plowed through the dense
thicket of Cosmides and Tooby's chapters in *The Adapted Mind*. However,
I still cannot distinguish the significant differences between this
so-called pioneering approach with that of traditional sociobiology.
Perhaps we could get some enlightenment from Jerome Barkow on this

Thanks in advance,

Not chaos-like, together crushed and bruised,
But, as the world harmoniously confused:
Where order in variety we see,
And where, though all things differ, all agree
