What are the origins of human psychopathology? Is mental illness a relatively recent phenomenon, or has it been with us throughout evolution?
In Origins of Psychopathology, Horacio Fárega Jr. employs principles of evolutionary biology to better understand the significance of mental illness. He explores whether what psychiatry has categorized as mental disorders could have existed during earlier phases of human evolution.
