    Does Sexual Selection Explain Human Sex Differences in Aggression?John Archer - 2009 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 32 (3-4):249-266.
    I argue that the magnitude and nature of sex differences in aggression, their development, causation, and variability, can be better explained by sexual selection than by the alternative biosocial version of social role theory. Thus, sex differences in physical aggression increase with the degree of risk, occur early in life, peak in young adulthood, and are likely to be mediated by greater male impulsiveness, and greater female fear of physical danger. Male variability in physical aggression is consistent with an alternative (...)

    Standards of Evidence for Designed Sex Differences.Aaron Sell & John Archer - 2009 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 32 (3-4):289.
    At the heart of the debate between social role theorists and evolutionary psychologists is whether natural selection has designed the minds of the sexes differently to some interesting extent. In this commentary I describe the standards of evidence for both the positive and negative claims. In my opinion, Archer has met the standard for designed sex differences in intrasexual conflict.

    Testing Mealey's Model: The Need to Demonstrate an ESS and to Establish the Role of Testosterone.John Archer - 1995 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 18 (3):541-542.
    Two specific aspects of Mealey's model are questioned: (1) the application of the concept of Evolutionarily Stable Strategy to all alternative strategies, including those that involve reduced lifetime reproductive success; and (2) the evidence for the dual role of testosterone, which is based mainly on studies of a modulating effect on aggression.

    Suspicions of Female Infidelity Predict Men's Partner-Directed Violence.Farnaz Kaighobadi, Todd K. Shackelford & John Archer - 2009 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 32 (3-4):281.
    Archer's argument regarding sex differences in partner violence rests on a general account of between-sex differences in reproductive strategies and in social roles. However, men's partner-directed violence often is predicted by perceived risk of female infidelity. We hypothesize that men's partner-directed violence is produced by psychological mechanisms evolved to solve the adaptive problem of paternity uncertainty.

    Refining the Sexual Selection Explanation Within an Ethological Framework.John Archer - 2009 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 32 (3-4):292-311.
    My response is organized into three sections. The first revisits the theme of the target article, the explanatory power of sexual selection versus social role theory. The second considers the range and scope of sexual selection, and its application to human sex differences. Two topics are examined in more detail: (1) the paternity uncertainty theory of partner violence; (2) evolution of inter-group aggression. Section 4 covers ultimate and proximal explanations and their integration within an ethological approach. I consider the development (...)

    Strategic Pluralism: Men and Women Start From a Different Point.John Archer & Mani Mehdikhani - 2000 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (4):588-588.
    Gangestad & Simpson's (G&S's) analysis of strategic pluralism is welcomed as a balance to the current emphasis on between-sex variation. It could have been clarified by acknowledging the extent to which males and females represent fundamentally different mating strategies, since this affects how we view within-sex strategic variation. The distinction between conditional and alternative strategies could also have been highlighted.

    Problems with the Concept of Dominance and Lack of Empirical Support for a Testosterone–Dominance Link.John Archer - 1998 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (3):363-363.
    Mazur & Booth fail to consider the conceptual complexities of dominance; it is unlikely that there is a motive to dominate in animals. Also, the lack of empirical evidence for a causal link between testosterone and dominance is obscured by the narrative reviewing procedure, which is prone to bias.

    Risk-Taking, Fear, Dominance, and Testosterone.John Archer - 1999 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 22 (2):214-215.
    Campbell's analysis of the evolution of human sex differences to include selection pressures on the female is generally welcomed. This commentary raises some specific issues about the evidence cited: the impact of paternal death on survival prospects; a possible mechanism underlying a sex difference in fear; the selective advantage of dominance hierarchies; and the absence of evidence that testosterone causes human aggression.
