Dear folks, For a study, I am collecting a list of references on findings and theories about human natural- and social universals. I¡¯d appreciate if those of you working on this area can direct me to the relevant studies, especially those with solid empirical evidence over longitudinal, evolutionary tests across distant cultures. I look particularly for scientific studies outside business/management, e.g., biology, anthropology, neurosciences, etc. As a return of favor, those who provide me more than ten relevant references will receive a full list of all studies I eventually collect from all sources. p.s., for those of you who have an interest in this topic, below are a few recent books that you might find of interest. Fukuyama, F. (2011). The origins of political order: From prehumen times to the French Revolution. New York, NY: Faffar, Straus and Giroux. Pinker, S. (2013). Language, cognition, and human Nature: Selected articles. New York, NY: Oxford University Press Richerson, P. J., & Boyd, R. (2008). Not by genes alone: How culture transformed human evolution. University of Chicago Press. Smail, D. L. (2007). On deep history and the brain. Univ of California Press. Thanks!
