CKLC Scholar Talk Series: Good Genes, Good Providers, and Good Fathers and Mothers: Sexual Selection and Mate Values and Preferences
Abstract : Men’s mate values are deﬁned based on three broad categories—good genes, good providers, both of which are selected early across the animal kingdom, and good fathers that represent the last pedigree of primate evolution and may have contributed to the human development of modernity and gender equality. Women select long-term mates based on these three mate values. Much more recent in evolutionary history, men also select long-term mates based on three similar mate values – good genes/fertility, good mothers/fidelity, and good providers/modernity. The presentation explains the origins and functions of these mate values and mate preferences using sexual selection theory and human and other animal examples.
