Abstract

After the Darwinian revolution, biology is not only the study of the operation of structural elements (functional biology), but also the study of adaption and phylogenetic history (evolutionary biology). From an evolutionary perspective, the biology of mental disorders is not just "neurobiology and genetic constitution" but also adaptive reactions to adverse situations. Evolutionary explanations of mental disorders are biological and non-reductionist.
