EVOLUTION & SOCIAL COGNITION

                     

I am Research Director at the CNRS and Professor at the Ecole Normale Supérieure – PSL University in Paris.

I supervise the ‘Social Sciences’ track in the Master of Cognitive Sciences and in the PhD Program of Cognitive Sciences.

I am particularly interested in understanding how our evolved human nature (e.g., moral sense, exploratory preferences, romantic love, behavioral plasticity, etc.) can inform the structure and dynamics of social and cultural phenomena : social norms, religious beliefs, political institutions, fictions and the arts.
My work is thus at the intersection of the natural sciences (evolutionary biology, behavioral ecology, experimental psychology), the social sciences (social anthropology, economic history, political sciences) and the humanities (cultural history, moral philosophy, literary theory).
