In societies that encourage us to compete with each other, compassion is often seen as a weakness. Striving to get ahead, self-criticism, fear, and hostility toward others seem to come more naturally to us. Yet researchers have found that developing kindness and compassion for ourselves and others builds our confidence, helps us create meaningful, caring relationships, lowers anxiety and hostility, and promotes physical and mental health.

The relatively new and controversial evolutionary approaches to psychopathology are examined in this collection edited by Paul Gilbert. Leading contributors explore some of the central evolutionary concepts that may have implications for cognitive theory and practice. The collection also focuses on specific problems where evolutionary-cognitive theory approach has been effective, for example on issues of optimism/pessimism, fear and anxiety, and command hallucinations in psychosis.
