  1. Gwen J. Broude (2002). Can't We All Just Be Altruistic? Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (2):253-254.
    Neither evolutionary theory nor behavioral evidence is consistent with Rachlin's view of altruism as a learned, domain-general learned habit displayed because of its intrinsic value. But human beings can be psychologically motivated by altruism while still reaping a genetic benefit from their altruistic actions.

  2. Gwen J. Broude (2000). Can Niche-Construction Theory Live in Harmony with Human Equipotentiality? Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (1):149-150.
    Consistent with the “niche construction” hypothesis, human beings tailor their behavior to local circumstances in ways beneficial to their inclusive fitness. However, the fact that any human being seems equally capable of adopting any of these context-dependent fitness-enhancing behaviors makes niche construction theory implausible in practice. The human capacity for exhibiting context-specific behavior remains in need of an explanation.

  3. Gwen J. Broude (2000). Eating Their Cake and Having It Too: Or, How Women Maximize Reproductive Success by Simultaneous Mating and Dating. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (4):595-595.
    Data support the claim from the target article that women, both cross-culturally and historically, have employed a variety of mating strategies, marrying but also engaging in short-term unions. But those strategies appear to be practiced simultaneously and not conditionally as Gangestad & Simpson propose, a finding consistent with assumed constraints on the potential reproductive success of females.

  4. Gwen J. Broude (1999). What the Human Annals Tell Us. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 22 (5):888-888.
    Evidence reveals numerous cross-cultural universals regarding human mental processes and behavior. Similarly, cross-cultural data are consistent with predictions from theories of kin selection, reciprocal altruism, and sexual selection inspired by Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection. Thus, the “annals of human behaviour” do provide “example[s] fitting the sociobiological bill,” (Lifelines, p. 202) thereby, supporting sociobiological accounts of human behavior.
