Summary or Abstract : Critics both within and outside of sociology have claimed that the discipline is mired in a long-running "crisis" marked by theoretical sterility and diminished public credibility. Some have suggested that one way for sociology to revitalize itself is to adopt a foundation more explicitly and closely based on the insights of evolutionary biology. Taking up these calls to give Darwinian approaches a fresh look, this dissertation examines recent work in these programs and evaluates their potential contributions to sociology. The heart of the dissertation is a series of five "case studies" that examine specific theories that have been offered by evolutionary scholars. The topics of these case studies are: (1) Cosmides and Tooby's work on social exchange; (2) Thornhill and Palmer's work on rape; (3) Sulloway's work on birth order; (4) Fisher's work on divorce; and (5) the Trivers-Willard hypothesis for parental investment. Included also are extended discussions of evolutionary psychological theories regarding cognitive limitations on group size, female waist-to-hip ratio, parent-offspring conflict, and family structure effects on socioeconomic attainment. In each of the five case studies, both the evidence that has been provided in support of the theory and the strength of its evolutionary reasoning are examined. In several instances, original research projects also examine particular hypotheses. In the concluding chapter, lessons are drawn from these case studies in a discussion of how sociologists can better engage and potentially use Darwinian approaches in their own work.
