Why we feel
The topic of emotion and evolution typically brings to mind Charles Darwin’s classic treatise, Emotions in Man and Animals. He observed that certain emotions are expressed similarly across species, especially closely related species, suggesting that these emotions are phylogenetically conserved.
According to modern evolutionary theory, different emotions evolved at different times: primal emotions, filial emotions and, later on, social emotions. Evolutionary psychologists consider human emotions to be best adapted to the life our ancestors led in nomadic foraging bands.
