Abstract

Spanish abstract: Nos comportamos en sociedad de maneras que potencien nuestra autoestima, eligiendo las estrategias adecuadas para ello. Algo en esta línea había argumentado Mark Twain en su sarcástico ensayo 'What Is Man?' —pero ahora los sarcasmos de Twain parece que tienen respaldo científico en la psicología evolucionista. Así comentamos un artículo de Luis Gómez-Jacinto. (Un retropost de 2011)

English abstract: We behave in society in ways that will promote our self-esteem, choosing the adequate strategies to this end. This line of reasoning had been suggested by Mark Twain in his sarcastic essay 'What Is Man?'. But nowadays Twain's sarcasms are shown to have scientific support coming from evolutionary psychology. It is in this light that we comment a paper by Luis Gómez-Jacinto.
