https://www.jimruttshow.com/heather-heying/ I have a wide-ranging talk with evolutionary biologist Heather Heying about “A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century: Evolution and the Challenges of Modern Life”, a book just published that she wrote with her husband and research partner Bret Weinstein. We discuss hyper-novelty & its challenges, niche-switching as the human niche, the naturalistic fallacy, the Ancient Beringians’ entry into the Americas, the hubris of reductionism & neo-cornucopianism, humans as the blankest slates, metaphoric & literal campfires, scaling laws in social groups, theory of mind, social media’s flattening effects including flattened affects, social media sabbaticals, the Sucker’s Folly, human population explosion, the Personal Responsibility Vortex, Proto-B communities, the lineage view of evolution, understanding exponentials & fat-tail events, culture as evolutionary adaptation (the Omega Principle), humanity’s Fourth Frontier, and more. This work of Heather and Bret is very useful for understanding where we are as a species here in 2021.

I had a really deep, useful, and enjoyable chat with Robin Dunbar, the legendary evolutionary psychologist, perhaps best known as the discoverer of the Dunbar Number, which predicts that cognitive limits drive the empirical finding that our friends networks tend to contain about 150 people. We get into the Dunbar Number and lots more as we talk about Robin's new book, Friends: Understanding the Power of our Most Important Relationships. We discuss: the importance of friendship to good health and long life, the loneliness epidemic, loneliness as a signal rather than a disease, oxytocin & endorphins, physical touch, synchrony & other ways of triggering the endorphin system, new data sources in the study of social networks, the social brain hypothesis, theory of mind/mind-reading, limitations of our mind-simulating capacities, the discovery of the Dunbar number(s), examples of the pattern from Navy Seals to Christmas cards, the mystery behind the scaling law of three, the seven pillars of friendship, costs & benefits of diversity, why friendships end, and more. https://www.jimruttshow.com/robin-dunbar/
