Navigating Neurodiversity and Evolutionary Biology - Andreas Hofer
Andreas Hofer has been interested in evolutionary psychology for almost 30 years now. His blog The Bigger Picture discusses ideas he has when he tries to understand the patterns he sees in the world. A self-published author of over 30 books with topics ranging from neurodiversity in children to how misunderstood human beings become misfits.
In this conversation, we’re taking a dive into a theory on evolutionary biology that seeks to explain why up to 0.8% of the world's population has Asperger’s, or high functioning Autism, amongst other topics. What Andreas proposes personally interests me since I myself have a mild case of Asperger's.
