Psychology Professor Featured in National Newspaper

June 29, 2009 - Campus Bulletin

Psychology professor Hank Davis is profiled in Saturday’s National Post in a feature-length article that focuses on his new book, Caveman Logic: The Persistence of Primitive Thinking in a Modern World.

Davis, an evolutionary psychologist, strives to explain why in the modern world, more people believe in ESP, ghosts and angels than in scientific theories such as evolution.
