Yeah… evolutionary psychology. That is most definitely cringe worthy. I traced it back once. Somewhere I have the info. The earliest reference I could find that was mass-market was a book from the early 1970s. “A new science” it declares proudly on the cover, and then I looked in Google Scholar to find any other evidence within the scientific literature and I could only find one paper written about 9 months prior.
Informal research on my part (I documented a bit of my process somewhere so I could recreate it if I *had* to), but it firmly placed in my mind that: Evolutionary Psychology is from the early 1970s with no evidence of it existing prior.
