About this product
- DescriptionFriends - they are generous and cooperative with each other in ways that appear to defy standard evolutionary expectations, frequently sacrificing for one ather without concern for past behaviors or future consequences. In this fascinating multidisciplinary study, Daniel J. Hruschka synthesizes an array of cross-cultural, experimental, and ethgraphic data to understand the broad meaning of friendship, how it develops, how it interfaces with kinship and romantic relationships, and how it differs from place to place. Hruschka argues that friendship is a special form of reciprocal altruism based t on tit-for-tat accounting or forward-looking rationality, but rather on mutual goodwill that is built up along the way in human relationships.
- Author BiographyDaniel J. Hruschka is an Assistant Professor in the Arizona State University's School of Human Evolution and Social Change.
