For a psychological literature to be universally applicable (and not a societal abstraction), it must be grounded in nature. The exclusion of discussion of evolutionary theory favours the generation of atheoretical constructs. Likewise, the reduction of human psychology to evolutionary psychology leads to ahuman (animalistic) motivational frameworks. Nature must be accepted in its entirety; from the carnal to our evolutionarily programmed belief in the internal.
