The moral animal : the new science of evolutionary psychology by Robert Wright( Book )

76 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 2,519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An accessible introduction to the science of evolutionary psychology and how it explains many aspects of human nature. Unlike many books on the topic, which focus on abstractions like kin selection, this book focuses on Darwinian explanations of why we are the way we are--emotionally and morally--and interweaves episodes from Darwin's own life as illuminating examples. Wright deals particularly well with explaining the reasons for the stereotypical dynamics of the three big "S's:" sex, siblings, and society
The evolution of God by Robert Wright( Book )

28 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 2,110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this sweeping narrative that takes us from the Stone Age to the Information Age, Robert Wright unveils a hidden pattern that the great monotheistic faiths have followed as they have evolved. Through the prisms of archaeology, theology, and evolutionary psychology, Wright's findings overturn basic assumptions about Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and are sure to cause controversy. He explains why spirituality has a role today, and why science, contrary to conventional wisdom, affirms the validity of the religious quest. And this previously unrecognized evolutionary logic points not toward continued religious extremism, but future harmony.--From publisher description

Three scientists and their gods : looking for meaning in an age of information by Robert Wright( Book )

15 editions published between 1988 and 1991 in 3 languages and held by 929 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the lives of three brilliant and eccentric thinkers, Robert Wright has fashioned an intellectual adventure story that is at once scientific and spiritual. Three Scientists and Their Gods is a look at the nature of both inquiry and faith, at the hazy line where scientific hypothesis passes over into fervent conviction. At the same time, it is a look at how modern science can inform our deepest convictions; it is, in the end, the story of what science has to say about the meaning of modern life
