Evolutionary Psychology on Hard Times

The New York Times editorial casts doubts on evo-psych as applied to male female relationships.  The body shots go back to 1998 after it took a pummeling from the philospher Jerry Fodor.  The odd thing about it is just how tiresome evo-psych explanations get particularly by amateurs on the web.  They use it to explain everything from why you were stood up for a lunch date to why you hate your co-worker.  Anything with that much explanatory power, explains nothing.
