This paper contributes to the critique of evolutionary psychology (EP) presented by Gannon. It argues that while it proved problematic to develop an effective multidisciplinary approach to understanding human evolution, EP need not have turned out to have such a narrow remit. Contemporary EP emerged on the socio-biology-psychology borderline rapidly disconnecting from the palæodisciplines. This is attributed to the cultural pre-occupations in the US with gender-relations, sexual behaviour and male aggression. This paper is a plea for the reinstatement of palaepsychology and the discovery of how psychology might contribute to that multidisciplinary endeavour.
