Mate Choices in Animals and Humans

Choix de compagnon chez les animaux et les humains


Social life in man and animal is considered as a means used by individuals to gain satisfactions. Sexual reproduction, social perpetuation and the exercise of power are all major goals. In man and animal the forms of marriage and sexual pairing are analyzed through the Darwinian theory of sexual selection as it encompasses aesthetic preferences. It seems to the authors that the behaviors of man and animals are better understood if they are considered as subjects of desires.
