Abstract

Review of Nicholson, N. (2000). Managing the Human Animal: Why People Behave the Way They Do in Corporate Settings, Texere Publishing, 316pp. ISBN 1587990318. Evolutionary psychology (EP) has had considerable exposure in academic and popular circles in recent years. Now EP has reached the shores of management and organization behavior. Its agent is Nigel Nicholson, who pitches the book as part conventional academic tome, part pop management best seller. The arguments expand on Nicholson's (e.g. 1997) earlier attempts to persuade us that EP is a radical and challenging perspective that will allow organizations to manage with the grain of human nature.
