The familiar procedure in engineering is you design a method to do certain predetermined tasks. Backwards engineering you attempt to find out, in the proof of form and performance, exactly what a system is built to do.
The conventional reverse engineering explanation from the human animal, in the bio-transformative adaptationist perspective, is the fact that people were formed by natural selection to resolve the issues experienced inside a hunting and gathering cultural lifestyle. This explanation from the human animal, however, creates an array of problems. It appears that when the standard adaptationist approach within the reverse engineering from the human species is true a lot about human instinct remains inexplicable. The truth is, in this “reverse engineering” method of a persons animal, a lot of the salient facets of human instinct must been wiped off as “non-adaptative.”
It might, obviously, be reasonably contended that natural selection couldn’t happen to be efficient enough to make sure that all traits of the species are particularly adaptative. This reasoning could be readily defensible in which the non-adaptive traits under consideration have minor significance within the overall adaptive technique of the species into consideration. Where, however, the traits into consideration represent the main and salient options that come with the animal’s adaptive strategies within the struggle for survival, we might start to suspect that there’s an excuse for a revision or “re-engineering” from the theoretical explanations which require that people dismiss these traits as non-adaptative.
The main relevant traits in human biology are regarding the biological juvenilization from the species (neoteny), and it is connected social and cultural traits.
