Research Monday 4: The Kanazawa Files
Satoshi Kanazawa is an evolutionary psychologist (well, a sociologist, really) whose research can be used as the example for almost everything that makes me grind my teeth about a certain kind of evolutionary psychology (the kind some people denote by capital letters: Evolutionary Psychology).
I've written a lot about his work. If you need to get irritated for a few hours, the links are in this post from last fall. You can go backwards to find out why he's a Big Deal. Or you could begin with this funny-ha-ha and sexist Psychology Today article, or this racist study by him. Then find out what I say about his work. To get relief, perhaps.
