  4. How Did Nature Create Involved Human Fathers?Read the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Dec 4 | Psychology Today

    We take it for granted that human fathers regularly invest in their children, but we are among a minority of mammals who do so. How did nature create involved human fathers? Were they honed by a higher power from interstellar dust? Were they the result of one's favored story of human origins recounted in, say, Joseph Campbell's "The Hero with a Thousand Faces"? Were they the product of a random Pleistocene mutation that yielded a new brand of man preferred by females? If we drew from the so-called "Modern Synthesis" of the 1930s in biology, we would imagine a scenario by which chance mutations created novel paternal phenotypes on which selection acted.
